Dear Ted and Marci,
I cannot express enough how sorry I am for your loss. Through her kindness and humor, Joyce made all of our lives better. We had such good times when she helped in my classroom and the kids absolutely loved her. I sure will miss my friend!

Marci,
You always told such delightful stories of your mom and dad. Then I met your mom and knew how lucky you were to have such a great mom. Nobody else would cart you back and forth to work with a broken foot than an awesome mom!

I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers goe out to you and your dad.

Mrs Albee was one of my favorite teachers. I still quote the wisdom she imparted to me like, "well Mrs Albee always said if the machine isn't sewing right it probably isn't threaded right." She was a wonderful teacher and person. I hope her family finds comfort knowing how many lives she touched.

Dear Ted & Marci...I was shocked and saddened to hear this news about Joyce! She was a wonderful person with a laugh that I’ll not soon forget. Joyce and I worked together to compile a list of former Westwood Heights staff members for the 30th anniversary of the district. To my amazement, Joyce knew almost all of the former employees, and had a memory or two to share about them. We laughed so much! I had such a great time working on that project...and I will remember her always!

May God grant you comfort during the difficult days ahead!

Marci & family,

So so sorry to hear this news. While my heart aches for your loss, I'm smiling through tears remembering the kindness she showed me at a young age. Memories of fun times in the pool, a trip west to Yellowstone! But mostly what is so vivid from that time was the deep adoration she had for her daughter & husband. Even at my young age (grade school), that shined through.

My prayer is that you'll find comfort in the coming weeks from great memories. . . and remember that [in the ad-libbed words of Maya Angelou] : you may forget what someone said or did but you never forget how they made you FEEL. That's quite the legacy!

Hugs,
Heather (Mains) Brewer
