We met Joan and Jim Wrenn in the mid 1970s when our children entered kindergarten at Walter Hays Elementary School in Palo Alto, CA. Our common interests included the Monterey Bay Area Aquarium, where we ran into each other on opening day there. They visited us after we moved to the DC area and toured the Smithsonian’s fish collection. Wonderful memories of a good friend, fellow scientist and Palo Alto member of our community. I shall always remember her.
