It is with sadness we read of Joy's passing. Both she and Bill were a delight to know. Although with 'I hope I don't screw up', I always enjoyed playing bridge with Joy. What a great bridge player! Do know you are in our thoughts. With sympathy, Ollie and Diane Larson (Sorry not to be able to attend, we are out of state.)

I am sorry for your loss. I was lucky enough to cut Joy's hair for a while and I enjoyed getting to know her. She loved to tell me stories about her grandchildren.
