  1. Edy was a big part of my childhood as I was a Havelock kid and she and Don were the owners of the Joyo where I spent countless Saturdays. They were kind and wonderful people. Edy always appreciated listening to my short stories and poems that I would write as a child and I will always remember her fondly.
