Her smile was brilliant and would put you at ease in any situation. Her faith was unbreakable and ever growing. Her love for her "boys" was everlasting. I consider myself honored to have had her in my life.

It is a privilege to be a part of the Albright family. Joyce was one-of-a-kind...a strong, faith-filled woman who raised three incredible sons. She taught me so much in a short amount of time.
