Marshall, Jeff, Stacie, Rachael, and Jamie

I am shocked to have read about Joyce's passing. She was so young and full of life. She loved to travel but mostly she loved her granddaughters. My deepest sympathy! My thoughts are with you at this time.

Dear Marshall, Jeff and Family,
We were so sorry to hear about Joyce. I am so glad I got to meet her last year when we had dinner in NY. She planned the best honeymoon for us in Hawaii as well as our anniversary trip to Italy. We will miss her.

Dear Family, I just got the Email about Joyce 's losing her battle to breast cancer. I was so sorry. We were both 1961 WHS grads. I lived on Woodside Ave, not far from her childhood home. I remember her house was so attractive with flower beds and a white picket fence. I remember riding the bus together to girl scout Camp Mary Bunker. I also remember her Mother combing her hair into perfect ponytail I always admired. My sympathy to all of you, especially hug the grandchildren.
