We were so sorry to hear about Ms Joyce. We still remember when she and Mr. Hank hosted a fish fry for our Southminster Sunday School Class. She was always so welcoming and friendly -- a dear lady and a wonderful Christian -- We will miss her very much. We send our prayers and sympathy to Mr. Hank, Chuck and all the family.

Uncle Hank and family,
It was with great sadness that I learned of Aunt Joyce's passing. Although it has been many years since I have seen many of you rest assured both she and you have a special place in my heart and I have fond memories of visiting in my youth. I have also hung a couple of her beautiful paintings in my office at home to remind me of my family so far away. I wish I could have traveled down for the service but unfortunately wasn't able due to my schedule. You are in my thoughts. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Henry and family,
I am sorry to hear about the death of Joyce. Please accept a sincere condolence for your loss from the Glenwood High School Class of 1954. Don Schoening just lost Mary Joyce and so this month of May is a very sad one for our class. As we classmates march into the future we anticipate the sharing of more somber days ahead. I know that you have those lasting memories of a lifetime of shared love. We will keep you in our thoughts as you keep those good memories in your mind.

Hank: We send sympathy to you and your family as you share many loving memories of Joyce. Joyce was a good friend of our sister Norma and they shared many good times here on earth and we believe they are doing the same as Norma shows Joyce "the ropes" of Heaven.
May God grant you His loving peace. JR. and Helen Boles

Uncle Hank, Tim, Kim, Sharon: There are no words that can be said about Aunt Joyce, she was Aunt Joyce. My heart is heavy for your loss, but I know that Debbie, Mary Ellen and Nancy are enjoying the time they have missed being away from Aunt Joyce. Now, they are all together!!. Thoughts and prayers are with you, and will be with you in the next days, weeks and months. Aunt Joyce was very special and I wish I could be with you today and tomorrow; however, medical appointments prevent that. Love you all.
