Thanks, Joann!

I took part in what I'm told was the smallest Phase One program Haven ever ran. There were just eight participants.
Joann led that group, and it's where I met, connected with, fell in love, and ultimately chose to leave the island with my partner Karen.
Every day for the first month of our relationship together, Karen and I got to experience Joann's wisdom, caring, and strength. It was such a great gift.
Last night, when I learned of Joann's death, I went upstairs to tell Karen the sad news.
She was putting our daughter to bed, and I sat there appreciating Ella as this beautiful manifestation of Joann's capacity to share her wonderful self.
