Our family trips to Cades Cove for breakfast will never be the same without her good biscuits and gravy. I loved Joyce. She was a sweet lady.

You took me in to your family with out hesitation. A person's heart couldn't be sweeter or more caring. You will be missed.

I’m sorry we didn’t get that last margarita Mammaw. We always had such a great time when you, momma and I went out, even though you two old gals could embarrass me to no end. You were the greatest and I will miss you so very much!

Love you,
