Dave and family,
I was very sad to read Joyce's passing. She will always be remembered and never forgotten. She was a friend of mine and graduated with her and
spoke with her whenever I would run into her. She was full of jokes and
laughter with me. I will miss her very much. Elaine

No words can express the love and joy that Joyce brought to all our lives, undeniable. I have known Joyce for a very long time, and truly can say she was
an angel here on earth as now she is in heaven. A heart so loving and giving to everybody. She will be so missed. I pray for her family and friends, for comfort in knowing she is at peace and rest. I was truly blessed the day I met her. I will love you forever Joyce until we meet again.

We just wanted to express how saddened we were to hear of Joyce's passing. We had not seen Joyce for about a year, and did not know she was ill. Had we known there was a gathering for her, back in June, we certainly would have been there. She will be missed. We knew her from Dollar General, and hung out sometimes. She was a good woman, and a good friend. God Bless her and her family. You are in our prayers.
