    Oh, the memories! I will always remember walking into your house to find you literally rolling on the dining room floor laughing hysterically, while Herb rolled his eyes like you’d lost your mind. So much love, so much laughter. My heart is with your kids and grandkids.

    Aunt Joyce was one special lady. As kids, we always looked forward to the visits from her and Herb, and her special hugs. Our hearts hurt and we will miss her deeply, but she is with Herb again, and that makes me smile. Praying for all of you. Peg’s, I wish I could hug your neck, you held an extra special place in her heart, remember those memories and know we are all her for you. Love you.

    Joyce, thank you for everything…. from white boots to a beagle puppy named Clyde to paying for things in high school to shopping trips to Venture and going to yard sales and helping me with a wedding and being with me when Kayla was born and taking care of her when I had Lanna and was a major “rock” when I lost Jim. Thank you for all the love and support. My heart is broken. You were part sister, part best friend , part Mom. Rest well. I love you to the moon and back. ????

    Auntie, what will we do being left without you. Your very being touched all of our lives. To have both beauty and personality are rare, but it was easy for you. You were a mother to all of us in one way or another. A friend, a real sweetheart. You will be missed so greatly. Uncle Herb and Aunt Joyce THE perfect couple. An example that you can live on the memory of your true love. Thanks Bobby and wife, for being there to help Aunt Joyce. You really belong to her heart. Pegs, she already misses you. Aunt Joyce you were a true gift to us, miss you already. Always love you, your nephew and niece Connie and Raymond.
