I’ll miss my best friend! When I told her goodbye, I never thought I wouldn’t see her when I got home. I thank God that I got to spend time with her, on the phone, after I left, & our many visits when I was home.
Julie & Jodi, you were so good to your mom. She was so thankful for you being there for her.
Joanie, I’m so glad you were there throughout her illness. Joyce was so glad you were there.
To the rest of the family, I’m so very sorry for your loss. She was the Mainstay of your family. She took such good care of each one of you!
I truly share your loss!! I’m so sorry I’m not there...

Joyce was another of my favorite "Class of 60" classmates. Always loved that sassy smile that also had a welcoming warmth. She had it in High School and kept it for each of our reunions. Rest in Peace, Joyce.
