I was saddened last week to learn from a colleague that Jo Anne Paul-Stanton had died of cancer. I met Jo Anne a couple times over the years, but I didn't really get to know her until she went to work across the hall from the WMMQ studio a few years back (was it really ten years ago?). Jo Anne had a tumbleweed-dry sense of humor and great passion for life, her family, her work. And for little yippy dogs. She was only 57 years old.

The world has lost a talented journalist and a unique human being.

Condolences to him and their three sons.
