Dear Laurie, Kate, and Dan,

When Yvonne and Joe moved out of your family home in Webster Groves, they invited me to come and go through Joes tools in the basement to see if I could use any of them. I found an ancient carpenters square that looked like it might have been handed down from previous generations. Over the years since, I have placed it along the edge of many planks to make sure the angles are right, before I committed wood to a saw.

A little rusted, but still a sturdy guide, the square reminds me of Joes presence in our work for peace, justice and the protection of earth. As a member of the boards of the ACLU, Great Rivers Environmental Law Center and World Community Center, he was always there to assist with legal advice and offer thoughtful perspectives as we committed ourselves to new actions.

This Fall I am putting up walls and paneling to create two rooms in the basement of our new home up here in Vermont. One will be my study and the other a grandchildrens bedroom. As I apply the carpenter's square to this task, I will remember fondly and with gratitude the gentle ways that Joe brought guidance and determination to our common work. He will be missed.

I wish I could be with you on Saturday, but will be thinking of you and your families,

Bill Ramsey

Dan, Kate and Laurie, On behalf of all the brothers of the Alpha Delta Fraternity at Washburn University at Topeka, Kansas we want to express our sincere sympathy on the death of your father Joe. Joe was a member of Alpha Delta who joined in 1938. Your grandfather, J. Glen Logan, was one of the twelve original founders of Alpha Delta in 1912. His picture is featured in our formal living room at the Alpha Delta house located at 1919 MacVicar Ave. in Topeka. Your father and I had several conversations over the years and I will always remember him as a fine gentleman. Every year at our annual Founders Day, your father's name and your grandfather's will be remembered as we do for all of our alumni who have passed on. They will not be forgotten at Alpha Delta. Most Sincerely, John Minnick, J.D., Alpha Delta Alumni Secretary

Those who were privileged to know Yvonne and Joe Logan will remember them for their adventurous engagement in life, their love for the the beauty of the world and for their service to communities near and far. Joe often accompanied Yvonne to her executive meetings of Womens International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) in Switzerland. They would arrive in the Geneva office having spent days mountain climbing and hiking. Joe would return to St.Louis with all the gear, shoes, ice picks, back-packs; Yvonne would stay for the meetings of the international Executive Committee. Joe always supported Yvonne in her work for peace and disarmament. We miss both and send our condolences to Kate, Dan, Laurie and the family.

I'm sorry to hear about your father, Laurie. Your parents held a place of awe for me, above mere mortals somehow. He lived a good and long life. I hope you are well and happy. Lori Zeiser

Dan, Kate & Laurie,
So sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. The good thing is he had a long life and the world was a better place because of him. He and your Mom introduced me to things I had not experienced. Lake Michigan in Holland was one of them. I remember riding up there on old Route 66 the first time he took us. We had a flat tire and he told us to just stay off the road while he took care of it. He put the spare on and we were on our way. I had never seen a body of water that big. What a thrill. And we took a Sunfish and a canoe out for fun. He also took me on my first float trip. I had been camping, but not on an Ozark river. I believe it was the Jack's Fork. We floated all day and then camped on a gravel bar. We had a fire and dinner and went to sleep. Sometime during the night a thunderstorm rolled in. That was exciting! They are louder and more intense in a tent. Your Dad was always glad to see us when we were growing up and later in life. The in-ground pool on Gore was the smallest I had ever seen, but it was the biggest fun and it seemed your Dad let us swim there every day all summer. He loved working in his yard and it showed. Always looked great. I think he also built the clubhouse for us to hang out in. And, of course, there were the infamous words among us as teens "party at the Logan's tonight". He provided us all with a lot of great memories. Thanks, Mr. Logan! You will be missed.
