Joyce was such an example of a wonderful Christian. I remember sitting close to her in church for so many years. I also remember that her hands were always so cold when we would shake hand. I will miss her.

I have fond memories of Ms Joyce growing up. She was my 6th grade Sunday School teacher and invited us into her home for parties. She took a group of us to see Gone with the Wind and then Wuthering Heights. She was a constant example of Christlikeness growing up at First Baptist. I�m happy for her today, for she�s with Jesus and so many loved ones. I pray for sweet memories for all who were close to her and took care of her.

Joyce was an example of what a person should be. Her kindness to me through the years will be remembered. She and Margaret were the best people I have ever known.
