I was in the Jackson, MS area last week attending the Fall Flower and Garden Festival at Crystal Springs, MS and made it a point to look up Loyce and visit her at the Blake at Township  assisted living home. Stopped by on Thursday and again on Saturday on my way back home. She is doing quite well and we had  very nice visits talking about our past experiences, daffodil members, shows etc. She was fairly alert, but I am not sure how mobile she is, as she was in her lounge chair both times I visited. Loyce has lots of books she is reading and of course was reading the Daffodil Journal cover to cover.  She was very glad to see one of her daffodil friends and talk daffodils and everything associated with them! The Blake is a very nice facility and she has excellent care!

    Thanks for the update, Larry. I was very sorry that I was not able to visit her when I was in MS this last weekend.

    She also likes to talk on the phone. She has trouble sometimes using her cell phone, but you can call the main phone operator at 601-500-7955 and ask to connect with her room phone. She said her son Kevin is decorating her room nicely with all sorts of daffodilia.

    Sorry Joe, I did not see your request until this morning. Thanks Becky for supplying the information for contacting Loyce. When I was there she had pictures all around the room of daffodils and some of her granddaughter among them.
