Dear Macbeth Family:

I was sorry to learn of the passing of JoAnn. She was a wonderful member of the large American Psychiatric Association family and represented both the association and the field of mental health and psychiatry extremely effectively. I write to convey my deepest condolences.

With warmest wishes.
