  1. Joyce and I worked at the same clinic several years ago. Early one morning as I was unlocking the doors, a man approached me and asked if Joyce still worked there. I said yes. He said to tell her that she had helped him greatly, and that he had a good life now, thanks to her. He then went on his way.
    My condolences to Micky, and to the other people who knew and loved Joyce. She helped make the world is a better place.
