Have many fond memories of Aunt Joyce. Hard to believe that minus the leap year with an extra day in 2016, it was exactly 8 years ago that Uncle Joe passed away. We miss him as we will now miss Aunt Joyce, but we will forever hold them in our hearts ߒ•. With deepest sympathy to Joe, Patty, Shane, and family. May God bless you all during this time of sadness but also rejoice that she is home with our Savior whom we celebrate today. Prayers ߙϰߏ»
