Love and prayers
We want to express our sympathy in the loss of Joyce.
What a blessing to have had your mother these many years…I have been away from Dana 25+ years….I knew and appreciated your mother 35 years ago and remember her as a blessing not only to me but to the community as well………..
May God’s Holy Spirit comfort each of you during this time of sorrow. I knew Joyce when I was much younger and always loved to see her smiling face. She was a treasure to be around.There is no doubt that she is singing with the angels.
Know that our prayers are with all of the family at this time. Dick and Imogene
