John, We were so sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. You and your girls are in our thoughts and prayers. We just got home Tuesday from Aunt Madge's funeral, so we will not be able to return to IN at this time.

John and girls: so sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. I know she is with Jesus. I don't think I can get there on Sat. Jason will be home. He has his good days and his bad days. I always enjoyed visiting with her.

Joyce's kind smile and sweet spirit live on in her daughters. Who will ever forget her "joyful noise" at ballgames or her love for gospel music and her strong faith in Jesus. Nor will we forget hearing her laugh when recollecting a story from the past or sharing tidbits about those 3 special "grands" she was so proud of. Rest sweetly till we meet again, Joyce, at Jesus' feet.
