Relation: Family Friend

Some people stand out in a crowd, without even trying. Auntie Joyce was one of those people. No matter what problem I found myself tangled in, she always had sage advice and good counsel to share with me. I will miss her and her example, dearly, and my heart goes out to her family and friends and the many hearts that she touched, at this unfortunate but natural time.
