Sue and Aaron, I will always remember the picture of Joel at his Bar Mitzvah. It lived on the third shelf of a bookcase. Aaron at his Bar Mitzvah was a mirror image of his dad. Joel smiled when I told him that. That one photo has reminded me of their relationship many times. What a memory for every one who who knows them! Lots of love to both of you, Mary Kay Dodson

Thinking of your family during this time of loss. Not only was I a colleague but also had Dr. Mintzes as a professor. So sorry for your loss.

Joel was one of my first friends when I arrived to teach medical sociology at UNCW in 1985. He remained a friend to me and my family through the university and the B'Nai Israel communities. May his memory continue to be a blessing to Sue and Aaron and to all who cherished his keen sense of humor.

Sue and Aaron, I am so sorry to learn of Joel's passing. Joel was my first mentor at UNCW - I taught a section of BIO 105, with him as lead. And I recall Aaron being in our wedding.
