    Dear Jennifer, I recently discovered that your mother had passed away. I knew Joanna around the end of 1963 into early 1964 when we lived in the same apartment building at 227 Newbury Street. I was attending The Berklee School of Music. We were very close for too short a time. We had planned on a future together, but she came to her senses and dumped me. But I still treasure the memories. I have some photographs I think you would enjoy having. You can contact me at
