    I’m so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. She was a special person and one of my mom’s best friends. She was so kind to drive her around and take her places when she was still able. And I’ll not forget her stopping to question me when I was cleaning my mom’s house out, (I was all sweaty and hair up and not recognizable.) And she was protecting her friend, knowing she was confined at the Manor. My condolences, Tracy, Todd and families. We’re going to miss her around Frankfort!
