Roy and Deborah,

I am so sorry I couldn't be at the visitation last night. I did not find out in time, but was also quarantined due to a possible COVID19 exposure. Joyce was such a sweet and warm lady. She always made a point of speaking to me in church. She will be missed for a time, but joyful reunions await for those that love the Lord...and she certainly did. My prayers are with you. May God bless you and the family.

Philip

You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. Such a sweet person and always so pleasant. As time moves on, I would think of Joyce every time in going into the cafeteria at the hospital. Miss seeing each of you also. Take care.
