  1. RL and family, we were so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. I’m sorry we couldn’t make it to the funeral. But we love you guys and are praying for y’all. It’s been a rough year for everyone it seems. Love you all.

  2. My life has been blessed by knowing Joyce. Many pleasant memories warm my heart. May each of you find comfort in remembering her unselfish life and in the hope of future reunion together. Sorrowing with you.

  3. Raymond, RL , Johnny and families. So sorry to hear of Joyce’s death. She was a sweet and loving lady. I loved her as much as my sister. When I would carry Betty something to eat I also took Joyce the same. Joyce thanked me and would tell me she loved me before I left each time. You’ll were very caring and loving to her and should have good memories because you’ll were always there for her. My prayers are with you’ll and I will surely miss her. Love Bonnie

  4. Sincere Sympathy

    Joyce was so loved by everyone who knew her. She was always so gracious and appreciated every single thing anybody did for her. Everytime I sent out anything for the Class of ’54; she would call and say; thank you for everything you do; I love you. Well we loved her back. I know she is rejoicing with her loved ones gone on before and she is at peace with her Lord and Savior. May God go with each member of her family in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from my family and the Class of 1954 to your family.
