Joel Kallman was one of my favorite persons at Oracle and I can honestly say I miss him a lot.

There are no words to express my appreciation on Tim Hall’s suggestion to dedicate October 11th 2021 to Joel.

I decided not to write a tech tip but to tell you about the blog post I wrote a while ago. This is the last project I worked with Joel. When I was done with the first version of the post, I sent it to Oracle for comments. I got the commented version back when Joel was already gone. Those comments included also his comments. Those who knew Joel know how polite those comments were. He was always so kind and caring. Reading and editing his comments was heartbreaking.

I want to dedicate this blog post to Joel. I miss you, my friend. Thank you for everything!
