Missing Joyce

Today My sister in law died, she was a remarkable person.

Even though She and my brother divorced more then 20 years ago, she was my friend, my confident in my teen years
Every Teen needs a special person to listen to them and she was mine..
Though she had 5 children of her own, you never knew who would be sleeping under that roof at night.
More then her own five chicks called her Mom.
Today on Face Book one of those teens she helped out posted a tribute to her.

Sheila could have ended up any where at the age of 15, but she was one of Joys many accomplishments. and still a member of our family.

When I was 15 I stood at the door of my Joyce's house with my suitcase. I said, "I have no where to go." She told me to come in and stay as long as I wanted. So I did. The winter before last she was quite ill and I stayed with her for 8 months until she was better. We had two old cranky broads living together. Even sick she was bossier than me! Joyce was an elementary teacher. She's the only person I know that would correct spelling on bathroom graffiti. She died today on her birthday. Love ya, hey! Sheila Babe

I'm so sorry. Let me know if you need chocolate or something totally inappropriate to bring a bit of cheer.
