We were stunned to hear of Joyce's death and saddened for all of you as we know how important her family was to her and what a blessing you all were. We have many fond memories of Joyce not the least was watching her bent over a pail of water washing many shells that she, Sally and Fran collected. She will be remembered fondly by her Terra Mar friends. Mike and Mary Ellen Vrankin
