I remember when I was young and she must do been 10 or 11 years old , I was young , I swear I saw an angel , Joyce with her long black hair , it was sunny and I was feel sad that day and she came to me , and I look up with the sun beating in my eyes , I thought an angel appeared , she put hand on my shoulders and told me I be alright , and smiled at me , she made feel better that day, and watch over me in protection , I loved her and always will ,, thank you Joyce for being there for me and being my guardian angel and you live forever in my heart , may you be in peace with God
