Joyce was a wonderful friend. We went to lunch together, we went fishing together years ago at Sheriff Maloney's cottage, we visited back and forth and enjoyed each other's company. She was very faith-filled and I loved her. She helped me when I took over her position at Emergency Management. I will miss her.

As we are coming into the season, this is for all the Christmas memories of you that we will never have again.

Aunt Joyce was a big part of my life when I was little, and well into my teenage years. After I grew up and moved far away I didn't get to see her as much, but I still miss her. Every time I play canasta I remember long afternoons of playing when we were young, sitting on her front porch. I remember holiday visits to her house, and how big a part of the family she was, and I think Christmas this year is going to be missing more than can ever be replaced. I love you Aunt Joyce.
