My little Aunt Joyce. I loved her so much. Aunt Joyce loved her children and grandchildren. She loved to talk about those grand babies, even though some of them are grown. Joyce never let grass grow under her feet. Something needed to be done, she done it.
To Darrell and Charlie, my heart hurts for you boys. Nothing more precious than your momma. God blessed you with a good one. Rest In Peace Aunt Joyce.
