Joyce McKee died mid-November. It is difficult for me to come to the realization that I will no longer receive one of her invariably chipper phone calls, nor will I be able to hit my speed dial and hear her sunny voice. Joyce was a friend to many, especially in the marketing world in general and the trade show industry in particular.
Joyce was a wonderful friend.. I cannot recall her ever saying a bad word about anyone. Despite setbacks, like the fracture she sustained earlier this year, Joyce never bemoaned her fate.
As I write this, I glanced at my phone. Still too early to remove Joyce’s name from my speed dial. Perhaps I never will.
