Joyce was a joy to be with. She kept me a lot when I was a young child & I had a close bond with her. She loved to tell me the funny things I used to do when she kept me. She gave me a Norman Rockwell plate that has a little girl,playing like she:putting on makeup, that hangs in my powder room. I think of her every time I see it. She will be missed. My thoughts & prayers go out to Larry & Kinney and their families.
