I just found out about Joy. Last we saw and spoke to each other was at our forty year reunion. I had no idea she became ill. We were friends in high school and I have very fond memories of our childhood time together. I lioved her laugh and great smile. My condolences on behalf of our class of 67 may she Rest In Peace and hope to meet again someday .
