To Joyce’s family. I am so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. She was a wonderful woman. I was married to your cousin Russ years ago and she always treated me like gold. I actually saw her at an event I catered a few years ago and she was just as I rememebered. She gave me a hug and a kiss. I will never forget her. Such a kind, beautiful woman. May God Bless you and your family and hold you tight in His arms. Much Love to all of you.
