Joyce was a big part of my childhood. Our families were friends and we frequently got together for family dinners. We had such wonderful times together. We frequently spent New Year's Eve together, the kids playing games, and at midnight, came the rye-bread pizzas-- what wonderful memories. When another music teacher told my parents that I had 'no musical ability whatsoever', Joyce stepped in and became my piano teacher, showing me I could learn to play a musical instrument. This not only boosted my self confidence, but taught me a love for music that I have to this day. I so loved talking with her, she had such a wonderful sense of humor and such a positive perspective on life, even when things weren't going well. She will be missed, but will live on in my heart.
