I first knew Joy in her capacity as Secretary of the Senate in the Legislature. She was so good at that job and ran a tight ship. I was, like most of my colleagues, always impressed and always a bit intimidated. When she started showing up at Bayside to bowl it was so disorienting to see her in this new capacity, I hoped I looked like I knew what I was doing running a business and hoped she thought I was doing it right. She became a regular – she tackled bowling with the same focus and intensity she had brought to her professional life. She was such a gracious presence here, though not above some good trash talking when the game called for it. Thank you for sharing so much of your time with us here, Joy. We will always remember you.
I am going to skip lines for this week. Instead I was thinking folks could just comment with any Skittles stories they wanted to share.
We are working on a fitting tribute to Joy here at Bayside, be it a trophy case with one of her old bowling balls, a plaque, or something else, and hope to have that put together relatively soon.
