We were so sadden to hear that Joyce passed away. She made everyone around her feel special & loved. Please know that you are in our thoughts & prayers during this very difficult time. I can't imagine the reunion she is having in heaven right now with her mom & all her siblings. She will always hold a very special place in my heart, once my dad passed away, she always stayed in connection with us & attended my kids graduation open houses & weddings. You knew you were loved by Joyce...

Joe, thinking of all the good times when you and Joyce came to the house and we would share good food, drink, and laughs! Joyce was a special lady and a good friend. Wish I could be there with you. You are in my thoughts.

Could not have had a better role model and 2nd Mom in my life! I will be forever grateful you had room in your heart to squeeze me in. There aren’t enough words to express how very much you meant to me. I was truly blessed to have you in my life. Time to rest now and celebrate in Heaven your homecoming. You live on in my heart and I cherish the time we had together on this Earth. I will always be your ‘Chelle.
