So sorry to hear about my good friend Joyce. I have tried to keep in touch with her since moving to Arizona. How I have missed our lunches together and our mutual love of cats. I will always keep her in my heart and sending prayers and love to the family.

I met your mom in 1957 when we started nurses training together at Waterbury Hospital. Many wonderful memories. Wonderful nurse and great friend. My heartfelt sympathy to her family.
