I loved Aunt Joyce's beautiful smile that lit up her whole face. I have such wonderful memories of her and Uncle R.D. coming over to our house on Christmas day to see what Santa had left for me. She was such a treasure and she will surely be missed. Praying for comfort for you during this difficult time.
