Dear Roy, Andrew ,Shelia and families,
I was both shocked and very saddened to hear of your Mom , Joyce's passing. Joyce and Art were always 2 of my favorite people and we enjoyed their company at many parties and events over the years. We all attended many ball games together and had many laughs. Joyce was such a kind, loving and always friendly women and always ready with a cup of tea and something nice to eat whenever you visited her. She always had the nicest smile whenever you met her. She will be dearly missed by many people who knew her. Sending you all my love, prayers. and deepest sympathies. May you RIP Joyce. Pat Milley

To Shelia, Roy, Andrew and family; we are so heart broken to hear about the enormous back to back loss your family has experienced. Words cannot express our condolences. I can’t understand or imagine what you’re feeling right now, just know we love you all and you're in our hearts. Aunt Joyce left such an imprint in my heart that will never be forgotten. And poor Bumps has lost a piece of his heart with Joyce's passing. xoxo
