Joyce Alene McMorris
March 28, 2019
Her husband Ace and I played dominoes at the American Legion #62 for years. One day Joyce had us go to Choctaw for cigarettes. We hit a couple of bars on the way up and back. By the time we returned we had had too much to drink. Joyce cut us off and wouldn't serve us anymore. Ace said you can't cut me off . Joyce said one of his famous lines. Get in the truck Ace. She was a very good friend and taught me many things. Like not bouncing around when you slow dance. R.I.P. my friend.
