  • She was a beautiful soul. Her smile, her laugh, her shining personality were enough to brighten even the darkest, gloomiest day. She was bubbly and spunky and sassy. Her sense of humor was boundless and she always had a spark, even when she was tired or feeling down. She made friends with so many and was loved by all she spoke to. I am going to miss talking to her before she clocked in and I am going to miss our greetings. I don’t know what more to say, other than I am going to miss her so much.

  • Joyce, your heart will never heal, but over a lot of time you will learn to live with your loss. I love you and pray for your family. I can’t believe what has happened. I still think of Chris and expect him to come through the door and say hello dad.

  • Joyce and family, although I never had the pleasure of meeting your husband or girls, I always kept you and your sister close to my heart, You were always smiling when we worked together, it was a hard job but our compassion and humor got us through rough days. I cried when you left, I never dreamed the hard things in life we have to face, that your daughter, a beautiful young woman with her mother’s smile, would cross over so suddenly, forever young.

    I am so sorry for your loss, I have no words that I can say to help you, I wish I could take this pain from you. I wish you strength, pray that God will comfort you, and someday he will make this clear to you why this happened. Know she was loved by many( I watched the video) was a good soul, a kind soul. She made an impact on those who loved her. Yes, my dear Joyce, she will be missed. She will live on in your heart.
