He Swept Her Off Her Feet

To the Editor:

I read The Dartmouth from time to time and was pleased to see your article about Joyce and Ken, the beloved janitors in Topliff/New Hamp ("Topliff love: Gone with the Windex?" November 16). I lived in Topliff from 1993-1994 and remember with great fondness all that Joyce did to make our dorm a great place to live. My boyfriend during those years (Tom Curtis '94, who just might be one of the football players in those pictures since I know I took some of the two of them together) also lived in Topliff and he in particular became close to both Joyce and Ken. So close that during our senior year, they invited him to dinner at their home where he enjoyed some much needed home cooking. Now how's that for going above and beyond the call of duty!

I hope that today's students appreciate Joyce and Ken now as much as we did back then.
