  1. Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Joyce on a few occasions, the stories that Jessica has shared about her have also left a lasting impression on me.

    This southern belle was a true firecracker! She reminds me so much of my own grandmother, who was also a southern belle.

    I know she is dearly loved and my thoughts are with her family. There are many great memories to cherish forever.

  2. Dear Al & Family
    Please accept our deepest sympathys.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with Joyce, Youself and Family.

  3. My thoughts are with the whole family during this sad time. I’ll miss Joyce’s sweet laugh and sunny smile. I have so many nice memories when I think of Joyce. She will never be forgotten- Joyce will be missed.

  4. The Casler family (Bruce, Patty and the rest of the crew of Annie) wish to express our condolences at the passing of Joyce.

    I can only image as she passed over that she was awoken on the other side by the light kisses delivered by her furry friends she loved so much as they guided her home.

    We wish her fair winds and following sea’s on that journey.
