I spent summers with my cousins at Granny Joyce's running all over Iowa Park. We'd pick green beans and okra from her garden and snap peas with her on the porch. I remember we'd get to fill books with S&H green stamps which were later given to us to go to the green stamp store to shop. She'd make us great breakfasts in the morning. She'd fuss at Diana and me for being covered in dirt after hours of playing in it out back. She'd make us clothes on that old pedal singer sewing machine. There are just so many memories of the good times at Granny Joyce's and too many to share here. They may not sound like much to some but like her coat of many colors they mean so much. Love you, Granny. Sing with the Angels.

Joyce Hallum was my granny. We would spend our summers with her. She would put us to work in her garden picking veggies. In the evening we would all sit on the porch & shell peas we would laugh & talk just have fun.
Granny always fixed us a big homemade breakfast in the morning with bacon, eggs & biscuits. This was really special because my mom didn't make us breakfast.
She loved to sing. She would line us kids on the couch with my papa & would sing Christian hymns to us.
I could go on & on sharing memories, but I will end with this my granny touched many lifes & will be missed.
