We thank the family for giving such wonderful care to our friend, Joyce. We know that their loving care made Joyce's last days more pleasant even in the midst of heartache. Joyce loved the Lord Jesus Christ and is now out of her pain. She has inherited her brand new body. She now has life eternal in the presence of our loving Heavenly Father.
What a wonderful place to be.

Our hearts are saddened that we will not have Joyce with us down here on earth but rejoicing that all her pain and sorrow is forever gone. She's rejoicing in Heaven with the angels and others gone on before. She loved the Lord and the Holy Ghost gave evidence of this many times over. We will miss you dear friend and sister in Christ! Our prayers are with the family at this time and praying for you all!
