Our prayers are with all the Joyner family today as you celebrate Margaret’s life. We will remember her fondly for always being interested in what we were doing and where were were traveling. We loved seeing their home in Burma on one of our overseas adventures.

Barrett, Stephanie, Felix, Leon,

I think that the loss of one’s mother is by far the saddest event of anyone’s lifetime. I experienced that in March 26, 2011.

There is just no other loss that measures up to this one.

Nancy and I join in with everyone who knew your mom in wishing you peace and comfort as you face this very sad time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your wonderful family.

In Sympathy,

Taylor and Nancy Carter

Dear Joyner Family; I was saddened to learn of Mrs. Joyners death this morning. I know that she will be greatly missed and that there is a void in your lives that cannot be filled. Although I have not seen her in many years, I have fond memories of the many kindnesses she bestowed upon Leon, Barrett and their friends when we were growing up in Frankfort.She was a great mom and a wonderful person. May God keep you all close as you cope with your loss. Blessings upon you all. Fondly, Steve

I just heard about the death of your wife/mother. I am so sorry to hear about this and wish that I had known sooner so Dad and I could have come to the visitation. We do understand what you are going through and we do sympathize with you. One thing that no one can take away are your memories. Just know that she is no longer in pain and is with her heavenly father. God Bless you all.
