What a beautiful and perfect tribute to a sweet mother and grandmother...I didn’t know Joyce real well, but after today’s celebration of her life and all the wonderful things her family shared I know what a blessing she was to all of her family. Even better we all know she is now in the presence of our Lord and Savior. Awesome!
