“Mama Joyce”, as us neighborhood kids called her, always had a smile and hug every time we were at her home. One weekend I was spending the night with Kim; we were dancing in the kitchen, eating brownies when Mama Joyce came in to see what all the laughter was about. Next thing we knew, she was dancing and laughing with us....of course, Nanny came out of her room and joined right in. That is something I will always remember. Mama Joyce left a special mark on everyone she met and will be truly missed.
