I loved our days together working at Hall's Bakery. Working with Joyce and Aunt Carol. Kelly and Lavon was like a family reunion every day we worked. Joyce shared memories of the lake and fishing, her kids and grandkids. She always used the phrase "slap this and slap that"! "Slap that dough right over here" or "Slap that icing right on there"! She always had a smile on her face and a contagious laughter. I never saw her having a bad day, ever. I am sending my heartfelt sympathy to my family. I love you all and know how much she will be missed.
