  1. I am so sorry for your loss – I know that Joyce struggled with her health and I hope knowing that she doesn't suffer anymore can comfort you all during this hard time. She cracked me up – and I loved that about her! More than anything else, though, she loved each of you so very much and was always proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren! Y'all were the joy in her life here – and now she is surrounded by only joy! It makes me laugh to think about Old MawMaw's first words when she sees her again! Let that remind y'all to use your skin care! hahaYou're in my prayers!All my love, Tami
