If all the people in the world could just be like Joyce, the world would be a better place for us all. What a beautiful picture was selected of her. She was the foundation of her family. My heart will always remember Joyce.

Charles and family I will keep you in my prayers that God gives you peace and comfort in the days a head. Joyce was such a sweet person, she always had a smile on her face. I was a cashier at a grocery store for many years and I got to know Joyce from her shopping there.
