It saddens me to learn of Joyce's death. I am a Gainesville High School classmate of hers and have been trying to locate her since the Class newsletter was returned to me in June. Since I will not be able attend her service I need to speak to one of her daughters. Our Class makes donation in our classmate's name and I need to know a preference. And also their address to be able to receive an acknowledgment of the donation.

I was saddened to here of Joyce’s passing. She always spoke to me in a kind and soft way. If I did any work for her that took any length of time, she would have to feed me. If I was working close by to her she would holler at me to say hi and invite me over to visit a while. Thank you Joyce for making me feel important, needed, and a part of your family.
