Sandy and Family, So sorry for the recent passing of Joyce. I remember all of the family reunions and summer days Marcia and I spent at the farm when we were kids. Memories are wonderful.

Joyce, the neighborhood will never be the same, without you! You have made a big impact on my family and myself. We will miss you! We will try and keep Joe out of trouble. I am certain he will step up and take over the neighborhood watch, although we will have to find him a starter kit (whistle, badge, flashlight). This will probably be a "Bad Idea".
We love you and will miss you!!!
