    I remember Joyce with that same smile as in the pic. Sometimes she would include a little giggle with it as well. She also had a feisty side when irritated just like the rest of us! May you all feel Gods love and know hes with you as you grieve. We love you and were keeping you in our prayers.

  2. Joyce and Fred have been great neighbors. Her memory will live on in all the special items in the doll house that Fred so lovingly built and Joyce furnished. Our five year old granddaughter is having such a great time with it and all the accessories chosen by Joyce. Our sincere condolences go out to Fred and the family. He will always have rocking chair on our porch. Love, hugs, and prayers, Dan & Mardy
