Joyce, my mom, was the classiest woman I know. She was beautiful, stylish, caring , loving and strong. She was the winningest tile rummy, May I, and Uno Player on the planet. She enjoyed her children and grandchildren above all. And she love to dance with Henry her husband. On the dance floor they were a sight to see and unstoppable. Ever The socialite she was full of laughter and close friendships that she forged throughout her life. She will be sorely missed by all.
