Margot Gerritsen:

Dear all,

I was one of Joe's last students. He had already retired partly at that time, but we did share some wonderful times on the boat, skiing and rock climbing. He taught me in his own way how to be confident that things work out one way or another. I did not quite believe him that time I was stuck half way up a 5.9 rock the first time I ever climbed. But, he just rolled a cigarette, sat down and called up to me "Take your time, I'm in no hurry".

I'm sorry I did not try harder to keep in touch with Joe. He had a great heart, and I will miss him.Margot
