Joyce was such a positive, happy person, and she was friendly to everyone she met. I'll miss her sweet smiles.

Joyce was always quick to commiserate with me about the pain I was having with my hip before I had my replacement surgery. And afterward she was glad to share with me our joy at our surgery's success saying that 'it was the best thing that I ever had done '. Thank you Joyce!

Joy was a special friend to me, I could talk to her about anything she always listened and gave good advice. We will miss her but will always remember the smile she gave us as she went back to her seat after playing the piano.
