Our dear Joyce was our wonderful next door neighbor for 29 years. She and Buddy were exceptional friends. How we miss him and have missed her for the last three years as she was in hospital and nursing homes. She was kind and friendly from the time that we moved next door. We shared many memories, laughter and good times. We can still hear her laughter and how she enjoyed Dennis' jokes. It is with tears of sadness and joy that we write this note. We shall always miss you, Joyce and we pray that our Lord Jesus is now holding you in his arms. To the family we pray for peace and we will keep you in our prayers. Our condolences to her sons Darryl and Travis and their families, to brother Butch and sisters Joanne and Faye and their families. We loved her and will miss her. With love in Jesus, Dennis and Roxana Blanton-September, 2019

Joyce was a blessing to know. She and Buddy were at Berclair at Dolores and Victor Ressman's camp house. The fun we had. Later, we visited in the home where Buddy was at his last days. Lovely, lovely women. I have you all in my prayers.
