I worked with Joyce, at Manpower on E. King Street, many, many years ago. Although she and Ed were dating, they were not yet married. I remember how bubbly she was; how she had such a zest for life and how much she made me laugh. I lost touch with her after I left and never knew of her illness.

My deepest sympathies to Ed and his family as they mourn her passing at such a young age.
