  • I love you so very much. My heart aches and can’t believe you are gone. My precious sister we have had such great times together. You could make me laugh. Miss you!!

  • Joyce was one of my best friends. We always had so much fun when we were together. She was always there when I needed someone to talk to and always there when help was needed. We kept in contact when she went to Michigan to live with her sister Ann. Just received a get-well card from her the week she left us. My heart is broken. We were close friends. I miss her so much. Prayers for the family. God bless each one!
    Love and blessings,
