  1. So sorry for your loss. There are no words to say that will make things better but just know she is in a better place. She had to have been a great mother to have raised the children she had to be such nice people. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. Steve, so sorry for your loss but we know she is in a much better place, no more suffering and pain. I only met your Mother a few times and she was so sweet and kind but my husband (Ducker) grew up with her in Madison Heights and she was always special to him. You and Your Family are in our Thoughts and Prayers.

  3. Joyce was a loving person and wonderful Sunday school teacher. I have very fond memories of the times we spent laughing and just enjoying life’s moments. My prayers are with the family today.

  4. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that knew and loved her.

    Very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
