    Kym, thanks for sending me the text , your mom was a very special lady and one I will never forget. Joyce loved her soap operas and told me to never call before 1:00 pm which I respected as she was a client of mine. I would knock on the back door, come in, we would sit at the kitchen table surrounded by pictures of Kym and Derek. She told me time and time again how much she loved the two of you. In summer, she used to say ‘come and pick the cherries’ , and she always bought beautiful flower baskets around her home. She had this amazing kitchen sink, from the 50’s and the cabinets to match. A lovely soul and a lovely person. RIP Joyce, your friend Debra.
