    Sandy Lake MBBob, Kathy, Jenny, Gary, Betty — I was shocked to read of Joyce’s death I just recieved the holiday card this morning and was going to start a letter. She was such a special person I know we will all miss her. I remember so many things about her but most of all her smile – she always had it, ready to give it to anyone who needed it. Please, know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Belair ManitobaCondolences to the family. Joyce was a caring, kind hearted, selfless person. She always put others before herself. She was a true friend, I have known her for almost 44 years. I will miss her, even though we did not see each other often due to distance. She was always in my thoughts and prayers. I have great memories of our visits, telephone calls and the pictures she sent of her pride and joys (children, grandchildren and great grandchildren) over the years. Her family became mine and mine hers. What a legacy she left for her family. All my love, Heather.
