We will always remember Rudy and Joyce and their love of the York River. Our family still considers the chance opportunity of living next store to these very special people as one of the happiest times in our lives. Running up and down the hill, across the yard to visit and just sitting on the pier were special pleasures that we will always hold dear. We will miss them both. On behalf of Tom and Shirley Williams, myself and my bother Tommy, we extend our deepest sympathy to your family.
