Devvy wrote a beautiful tribute to Joan in her NewswithViews article. You may read it by clicking here. Joan was a successful financial planner. Trust me, you don't want Yours Truly (me) for financial advice! Joan gave the best of her talents to informing the rest of us. We didn't always agree but I always trusted Joan's integrity and respected her brilliance.
Joan admonished me on one of our last conversations that I had to take time to "stop and smell the roses." She said she had done too little of that in her own life. Joan's immense efforts were capably summarized by Devvy's memorial column:
Joan attended more than 100 conferences put on by the elites who rule the world and want to destroy ours. She traveled to many foreign countries to get the truth first hand. A huge sacrifice demanding a great deal of time away from her family. But, she did it because, like millions of us, we know the grand scheme underway to bring down our country and force us to be ruled by a one world government. Joan said no way and dedicated herself to fending off the attacks on our sovereignty with her columns, speeches and radio appearances.
