I met Joyce at a family gathering 15 years ago. Over the years I would see her at special events and holidays at Tim and Mary's house. We would sit and visit and she'd tell me what was going on in her life. She was always positive and had such a cute little way about her. I will miss Joyce and our little chats. She will always have a special place in my heart.
