I will miss Joan's wit, her biting social commentary and understanding of the human and social issues of our times. She was a passionate advocate for human rights, animal rights and the value of common sense and education in understanding and resolving the problems we are facing. Joan had a voracious appetite for facts and a boundless appreciation for irony. Joan had absolutely no tolerance for the purposefully ignorant among us or for those who fail to use logic and rational thinking to understand and engage in solutions for the problems facing our country and our world. After the election of 2016, she became increasingly discouraged that America could reverse the downward spiral that ignorance, fear and greed had created here and that the conservative con men in leadership were taking advantage of for their personal benefit and enrichment.

Although we did not know each other for long, we knew each other deeply because of our shared interests in social issues, in the duty of political engagement and in searching for the truth among all the lies and misinformation being circulated in social and mainstream media. Even when her "circadians" put us on totally different schedules, we would share 10 or more emails a day, long talks on the phone and occasional visits to share thoughts and appreciate each other's furry family members.

Joan often said she preferred the company of animals to many people she came in contact with and none was more precious to her than her beloved Pinoch. Lastly I will remember Joan as a foodie par excellence who would hop into the car on a whim to purchase some obscure delicacy from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods where the staff knew her well and appreciated her discerning taste buds! Rest in Peace, dear friend. You have been through enough.
