    I loved Aunt Joyce – mostly from afar – since the early 70s. She was a beautiful person who, I know, will be missed tremendously by those who loved her more closely. Jennifer, I am very sorry for your loss.

    Dear Jennifer:
    I was so sad to hear of your mom’s passing. Her Gastonia plant family has been recalling precious memories of her during our work careers. She was loved by all. She was also my Shag dance partner when we decided to learn. My what fun we had. You were always the apple of her eye and she lit up like a Christmas tree anytime she spoke of you. I pray that God will comfort you during this time, but just remember your mom will always be with us. Sincerely,
    Scotty Taylor
