I first met Joan in Budapest when she was accompanying Sam on a business trip for Lincoln. I had just started with Lincoln International at that time, early nineties.
Joan stroke me directly as a very nice and caring person. We gave had several encounters after that in Cleveland and I always felt warm welcome. I exepienced that she and Sam passed on that kindness to their children since I got together with some of them for fun occasions!
Sad to hear she passed away but due to het being religious, she must be in good hands and I hope her children find comfort in that.
I will always renember Joan and Sam as. I am always reminded, be it when I drink a Sam Adams which I always referred to as Sam Evens or when I hear the famous words of Sam’ roommate Neil Armstrong which is now used in commercials overhere.
All in all I keep remembering Joan by the same token
Wishing all of you the very best and the strength to cope with this loss
