    Mr. Bartlett, I am so sorry to hear that Joy has passed away. I have pleasant memories of the few times I was fortunate enough to be around her. And her knitting skills were unbelievable----such beautiful work by a beautiful lady. My sincere sympathies to you and your family. Sincerely, Kathy Garris
