To the Jones family, I am saddened to hear that Joyce has passed. She was a very good friend and while we did not correspond over the years, I always thought of her as a friend. Knowing she is with the lord and the hope of reunion some day is the only comfort. I celebrate that I had the chance to know her and relish the memory of her warm smile and great humor.

Jones, it is so hard to say the right words to someone that has lost the love of their life. I will always remember Joyce's beautiful smile and definitely her laughter. I pray that you cherish the wonderful memories you have made together as a family and this will help you get through each day. May God give you and the family peace and comfort in the days to come!

Until we meet again my friend.
Joyce was like a sister to me. A woman who had an incredible amount of love, kindness, joy, understanding, patience, and faith in the lord. I give thanks to Jesus that he blessed Joyce and I with countless hours these past couple of years since my retirement to just hang out with one another at her home.
Joyce and I met at Pacific NW Bell back in 1983. We shared so many happy times together with friend's and family. Her mom was alive back then and we would go to Joyces momma's house to eat, play Whisk and just have FUN !! Long nights that we wished would never end. Those days will never be forgotten JJ {nick name for my girl }.
Then there were the days that they opened their first BBQ store, again countless hours spent there talking, eating, laughing and just hanging. That is what we did best. We just hung thick as thieves, we laughed, we ate, and we ate some more.
I love you my sister !! I will hold you in my heart forever and a day. I will stay in touch with the family. I will go to Blue Water Grill with Marla and have a good time for you. I will visit Lee Lee and make sure to make myself available to her and her family just like you would want me to do. I will check on Rudy and William. I will make sure to stay in touch with your sons. Most importantly I will stay in touch with Jesus !! Thats what you would want me to do and I want to be obedient.
I am here for you on earth my friend. This is my promise to you Joyce. I will NOT let you down. I miss you. Please watch over all of us JJ.. I love you , Rose

I had to reflect back on when I actually met Joyce. I was nine years old. We went through school together all our lives and neighbors till the move to the new house. If our parents weren't available to take us to Joyce, Mr. Williams would put us all in the back of his truck and we would go and stay and eat and have a GREAT time. We were young teenagers by then. Joyce was still the same sweet person. We made it through the years and Joyce remained the same sweet person I'll NEVER forget. I didn't see Joyce very much in recent years but I do thank God that I was able to tell her by phone, I have always loved her and how sweet she has always been. As sick as Joyce was, she still wanted to plan a lunch for her girls from school. Joyce will be missed family. God blessed you with an ANGEL! So many people loved Joycie!It's a blessing to have been friends with your Mom. God bless the family and friends. Oh and Dianne, please forgive me, I had to leave and did not get to hug you properly.

Joyce was a blessing to the many special students that she lovingly worked with over the years. A bright and brillant beacon of God's light, she could change the course of a day with the smile on her face and in her eyes. Joyce always made me laugh about something. I loved our passionate conversations, whether we agreed or disagreed, I always learned something! I am so glad that I had a chance to see her daily for three years when I worked at Mercer, and most of all, that we became friends.
May Joyce's great love of God, family and friends be a source of comfort and peace to us all in this time of transition.
