Peter and I have your family in our thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed my visits with mom, Harriet, to see Joyce. The two of them would talk and laugh about old times. Joyce had a way of lighting up a room and always made you feel welcome. If she had baked something, (which was always delicious), she offered a little for you to take home. We will miss her and will continue to keep all of you in our prayers.

It was with great sadness to hear about the passing of Miss Joyce. She was a wonderful lady. I will never forget her warm smile and gracious welcome every time I visited her. She set an excellent example for other in the community. Her home going service today was very special just like Miss Joyce. She will be greatly missed. Wishing comfort and peace to Miss Joyce’s family, love ones and friends.

Ann, I give my condolences to you and your family. I know God will give strength at that when you need it the most. I never had the opportunity to meet your mom but I know she was beyond a sweet and genuine person because Ann you are. They say every girl take ways as her mom. So live her legacy and keep your head up. Love your child who you babysits at 30+ when her mom goes out of town. ❤️ I hope it made you smile. Bootsy

Ann, Billy, Butch, Vickie and family,

I was very saddened to learn about Joyce’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Joyce was a sweet, kind and good Christian lady. She loved her family, friends and her church friends at Geneva Presbyterian. She was a wonderful cook. Keep the faith and remember one day we all will see her again. I can see her singing in the Angel Band up in Heaven right now. She will be greatly missed.

With Deepest Sympathy & Love,
Bobby G Moss ( a cousin )
