One of the last times I visited Joyce she said “Sue, I’ve always loved you!” Well I say “Joyce, I’ve always loved you too and I am sure going to miss you being here!” They don’ make people like this special lady anymore. She was the best person, friend and let’s not forget to mention her cooking. Ed and I will always remember and hold dear in our hearts the wonderful and fun times spent with her and Jerry.
