Ann, I am saddened by the loss of a real friend. It was a privilege to have worked with Joe at Texas Instruments. He was a man of great integrity and a person who was respected by all who knew him. I'm happy I was able to visit with Joe in Macon last year. Ann, you will know the support of a wonderful family. God bless you in these next days!
