Trina and Danny I’m sorry for the loss of your sister/ in-law my Aunt. I remember the Christmas party she gave in Ny, and how I danced that night. Aunt Joyce taught my mom Hattie Crockett how to tie a scarf over rollers. You know that was way back in the day. When Uncle Allen drove Aunt Joyce mom and myself to South of the Border, we had a ball. Just know that Aunt Joyce will be missed.
