  1. Susan Pomeroy Martin :

    So many years ago as a young girl I used to walk up Labonte Avenue and go to see Joyce and the kids. It was a place to go to see a friend and also be so grownup and visit married folk. Joyce was always so kind to me and would always offer me encouragement and advice. Joyce’s door was always open. To James and all Joyce’s extended family I send you all my deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers.
    Susan Pomeroy Martin and family

  2. I know it’s been a number of years since I last had contact with my mother’s side of the family, so I apologize in advance if this seems awkward or even inappropriate. I never really meant to loose touch, and I still feel bad that I did. The news of my grandmother’s death did shock and sadden me when I was made aware of it. I feel bad about never getting to have a last conversation with her and I felt compelled to try and reach out, even a little bit. She was a good woman who was good to me. I will always remember her doing a lot for me. Her daughter, my mother, certainly loved her. And so did I. I wish you all the best, and I hope you are ok.

    Dear Jim and Family:
    I am sad to hear about Joyce’s passing. My sole surviving aunt passed the news about Joyce on to me. Sadly, I did not really know Joyce. I am a first cousin of Joyce’s as our mothers were sisters (Williamina/Billie). From Joyce’s Obituary I was able to complete a significant missing section of our family history going back to the late 1800’s.
    In a small way, after reading the condolences to Joyce’s family, I feel that I have gotten to know her a little bit more.
    Please accept my deepest sympathy.

    Dear Andrea,
    I was saddened to read about your mother’s death. I will always remember your mother as a kind, young, fun- loving mother. Although it has been many years since I have seen you, I cherish the memories of the fun times we had at your home on Labonté street. You are often in my thoughts and prayers.
    My deepest sympathy to you and your beloved family at this most difficult time.
    Peace to you,
    Frances Buchanan
