Joyce, I worked at the Village with you from 1979 till about 1989; when I left to study law and started a new career. You continued to work at the Village...Doing what you did best; helping children in your care and training staff.
I know you were always trusted and loved by the children and as well as a supervisor. Your superiors admired you and sought your guidance and you taught me a lot as well.
I remember your children too, particularly Michelle, I know God will give her strength and may God comfort Willie.
Your friend, Ike
