I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Joyce was indeed a special person. I have very fond memories of Joyce every Sunday as I ushered at door #2. She always made sure she said good morning to me and shook my hand. She was the type of person that brightened anyone's day. Praying that the Lord will be your strength and comfort during this time and that He will give you peace and will uphold you with His strong right hand. God bless you,
