    Friendship is a love that’s storng. A jewel I highly treasure. It’s worth I cannot measure. The jewel in my life, Joyce. For 50 years when near or far from each other we could just sit and talk. Our secret whims we shared. We spoke of hopes and dreams and unburdend all our cares. I will never have another friend as dear to me as my frind Joyce. You will live forever in my heart. As once said,”til the end, you’ll always be my best friend.” Love, Dottie

    I remember getting to know you best when you came to Tacoma, Washington to visit Dottie and stayed awhile with us. Also, was able to see you and visit off and on over the years as well as occasionally corresponding. We don’t understand why these things must be but trust that you have now seen Jesus face to face.

    Joycie,

    This is the perfect picture to remember you by, although we don’t need a picture. It captures your spirit as a caring and loving daughter, sister, cousin and friend. I am proud to say that I knew you here on earth and look forward to seeing you again in the hereafter along with all of our family. Until then, we will miss you greatly.

    Mom,

    I miss you so much. I just want to pick the phone up and call you, like I did every day. It is so hard without you. I am glad you have no more pain. You went so fast no time to say goodbye, but I did get to spend a few special days with you. I will never forget about the smile, the wink and the I love you.

    Your daughter,
    Kristina Marie
