  1. Ron and sons – I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I attended the same church as Joyce for many years and got to know her as a sharp minded, dry witted and very funny lady. She would rip off hiliarious one-liner comments that would take me by surprise. I know that she will be dearly missed by all that knew her. I rejoice with you that she has ended her suffering and is now resting in the arms of her Saviour. Please know Ron that you are in my prayers.
