In memory of a dear friend who sadly passed away August 2017

who in turn was the son of Isaac Light and his partner Annabella Crutcher .

This is just a brief outline as Joyce published her own history about her family called "Families Entwined"
She was always talking about her parents and brothers and sisters to her family was everything ,and she
loved nothing more than to find a new lead or ancestor in her family history research.
I just wanted to have a page for Joyce to remain "online" where we spent so many hours often into the early
chatting or exchanging family history snippits,and more often putting the world to rights! Always Upfront and
honest and from the old school where people called a spade a spade which was so refreshing in todays world
of PC madnesss she was indeed one of a kind.
