    Auntie, you are missed tremendously. I can not even begin to share the impact that you have had on my life. You are one of the strongest women that I know. Thank you for being not only a sister, but best friend to my mother. You were there for so many people, you were sweet and loving, and we always knew where we stood with you. I know that you knew the Savior and I know that I will see you again in heaven. Tilmon misses giving you neck massages, no now I will have to take them. :) I love you and miss you, but I still have your smiling loving face to remember and I still here your voice telling me the I'm stubborn. Take your rest Auntie and I will see you again.

    To the family and friends: please, accept our sincere condolences in your recent loss. May you find some comfort in the words of Psalms 34:18 which reads: " Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit " Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the sure promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise.  (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this.

    Auntie Joyce, there are no words to describe the impact your presence had on my life. From the overnight stays, to chillin in the pool, to the late night rides with Anita in the Mercury Grand Marquis. Every stage of my growing up I have a memory of you. You showed us how to be a courageous woman of faith in the face of trails and tragedies. Your "tell it like it is" style no matter when or where you saw us, keep us in line. We knew you would fuss but never for long and then we would be off to the next adventure. I will cherish the memories and wish you a peaceful rest until we meet again.
