    Joyce was such a loving caring friend. After my older sister died, I shared with Joyce that I missed my sister’s cards and letters. After that, she never missed sending me a birthday card, a Christmas card or an encouraging note. She made a difference in my life. She was my unofficial chosen sister. She is why I remember to send cards and notes to others.
