    So sorry to hear about Joyce. I am sure she is getting heaven re-organized and is doing it her way. LOL! Thinking of all of her family knowing you will miss her forever. She was one of a kind and God threw the mold away when she was created. I will always remember her as a feisty little soul with a temper to match her hair color. LOL!
