Anita and Ralph Coram here, friends from Bob’s work. I, Anita, have such a vivid memory of Joanne though I haven’t seen her in a while. That’s because she had such special energy. She sizzled. As the great poet said:

But if the while I think on thee, dear friend [Joanne]
All losses are restored, and sorrows end.
- Sonnet 30, Shakespeare.
