My sympathy goes to all the family. I have lovely memories of Joyce when I was about 11 and she was a very young and modern mum to Carole and Vanessa (we are the same age). Joyce took us out to Southend, shopping in Roomes and Bodgers and Gammages in London. We must have been a nuisance- very giggly girls - but she didn't tell us off - just laughed and always seemed pleased we were enjoying ourselves. Joyce was a great cook too - and was serving home made NewYork cheesecake before it was known much outside of NewYork. She loved the new trends of the 1960s . Joyce was also a very good friend to my mum. Happy times.
Love to all Maureen

I am I and you are you, whatever we were to each other that we still are.
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
Life means all that it ever meant, it is the same as it ever was.
