Memories

Joyce was a very good friend to my mom, always going out of her way to make certain mom got a hug. They lived in the same apartment building for a time and Joyce and Howard were both generous and gracious to my parents. I know that my mom will sorely miss Joyce. On behalf of my whole family I extend deepest sympathies to all of you, especially to Howard. We know your lives will never be the same. God bless you.
