The family of my wonderful aunt and former Naches Heights resident, Joyce Jett-Ali, has shared the following publications with me. I was fortunate enough to be taken under Joyce's wing at an early age and I am honored to hold a small piece of the rich legacy of love and dignity that she left behind. She gave me wings and taught me to soar so I could better see the landscape. I am forever grateful. And also, happy to share this resource with my community.
