    Joyce was a beautiful lady who always had kind things to say about my kids. I have known her more than twenty years and she was like a mother to me. My deepest sympathies to Kara, Darren and Darce, the grandkids and all who loved her. May you be comforted knowing that Joyce is now with Wayne at Peace in Heaven. 👼♥️
