May you find comfort in knowing that Joyce is safe in the memory of Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs and come out"

I am just heart broken. So many great memories were made at Mrs. Joyce's house when we were growing up. And I loved seeing her at the nursing home where she always stopped in to see daddy. And square dancing. And clogging, and oh I could go on and on. She will be missed. Love and prayers to you all.

I saw Miss Joyce twice recently and was blessed by both encounters. Despite all the difficulties she might have faced, she was always loving and giving. In fact, the last time I saw her was as she was volunteering for our local Manna House. My thoughts and prayers are with the girls and their families.

Patti and Shelley, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a giving woman. There is no way that I could have made it through the last few months without her chaffeur services, her late night talks, her visits, her texts, her baked goods, and the list goes on. I feel lost without her as I know you do. We love you and thank you every day for sharing your mom with our family.
