Paul, my condolences to you and your family. I don't know if you remember me but it was always great to see you and Joan. I would be sure to seek you both out at the ex-Motorola breakfasts or at the retiree's Christmas party. Joan worked for me when I was in charge of shipping and she handled International shipping. She was a joy to work with and always had my back. She will be missed. Not many more of us left.

Paul, we are sorry to learn of Joan's passing so soon after you both began a new phase of your life together. We have our memories, all good, of your dedication and help, together with Joan's support and encouragement, to develop and introduce several performing arts groups in our Sun City Community. May God grant her Peace.
