    I didn’t know you very well, but what I did observe is were welcoming and inclusive of everyone. You would quite often be the mediator and voice of reason when things went haywire amongst us. You will be missed by all especially those that were close such as Hanna….safe in gods arms RIP Joyce

    I hope you’re up in heaven playing a mean game of canasta or spades, and showing them how hard you are to beat! Hope Buster was there to meet you and give you the biggest 🤗. Love and miss you, thanks for all the laughs and fun times we shared.

    You will be missed my friend. I remember all the great times we use to have in those old chat rooms and you playing music and making everyone laugh. And I will never forget the first time I had gotten to meet you, You were so much taller then me and the picture we took together was so funny we laughed and laughed. We lost our shorts that day at the races but we had a blast. Joyce I know your in Heaven now and your at peace but you know how I always felt about that, Your not really gone because you will always be right here with us, In our hearts !! Love you Smokey !!

    I hadn’t seen you much since high school but I reminisce about our high school football games. All the fun we had going to away games. One of my most treasured memories of you.
