    We were Joyce and Don’s neighbors for a few years in Lincoln. We moved next door to them when our oldest son was just 2 years old. Our second son was born shortly after and Joyce was always a bright spot in our family’s daily lives. She evidently held a special place in our oldest son’s heart because he named his dog Joyce!!
