Guy and family, We are praying for you all at Joyce’s home going, Rejoicing with you for God’s loving arms that welcomed Joyce home, but realizing your deep sorrow at the empty space in your lives. Praying that those same loving arms that welcomed Joyce home will enfold you and carry each of you during the days ahead. Bruce and I speak often of our trip through the British Isles and what a good time we had together. In Christ’s love Bruce and Pat

I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember Joyce from my childhood because she married Guy Jester, who I knew from Oakmont Ave and working for my dad. I will always remember her beautiful eyes and glorious hair, and her smile. Condolences to all.
