Joyce holds a special place in my heart having been friends for so many years to me and my now deceased wife Penny. She called me often to see how she was doing during her many problems resulting from cancer. We went to Tree of Life church together and often talked with her. We would also talk with her at Walmart and she would tell us how much she loved her family. She had so much love to give to all she knew.?Joyce was an awesome friend as well as her husband Art. Friends are truly friends forever no matter what. May God’s Grace and peace and calm be with all of her family. today and every tough day ahead. Many are praying in my church family here in North Carolina.
