Bob and I send our love and prayers to the family of Joyce. Joyce was such a kind, quiet and tender person. Some of our fondest memories are attending church with Mr Connie, Mrs. Hazel, Joyce and family at Maple Grove. May God give you comfort at this time.

I was very saddened by the news of Joyce's passing, although, I know she had not been well for some time. She was a very special and dear person. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I am truly sorry.
