Joyce and I met when we went to K-State in 1962. We were roommates in our Sophomore year in Putnam Hall. I was around when Roy came back from the service. We kept in touch for several years then lost track. When her mother passed away, I got a mysterious message which let me get back in touch. I visited her in Kingman and a few time in Marion. A couple of years back, I stopped hearing from her. I tried many ways to reach her to no avail. Today I found a list of contacts and was able to find by googling that she had passed away. I am so very sad to have not been in contact in her final years. My heart is with her. Much love and peace, Joyce.

One of our high school family. A simpler time when we enjoyed each other's company and had fun.

Joyce & I basically grew up together in the Penalosa farming community. We attended Sunday School & Church at the EUB Church in Penalosa, so we had many times together at church picnics, etc. High school we were again together at Kingman and finally, we both went to K-State in 1962. After I left Kansas, I lost touch of Joyce but still remember all the times our paths were mutual. May she rest in Peace.
