    All I can think about is the yellow tutu, that Joyce was expecting me to model. I’m truly glad that I had the oppotunity to know her. Obviously, from the turn out yesterday, she touched many people in such a short time on this earth. Burley

    I am so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. I use to work with Joyce at Grande’ville and she would always make you laugh and her laugh was so funny you couldnt help but to laugh with her! She would love to play jokes on people-some of the best times I remember..was of Joyce playing some kind of prank on someone! I will miss her, My heart and thoughts go out to Sam and her family, My deepest sympathy to her family.

    Joyce scared me. She was a wild spirit, an eagle with an attitude daring to soar!. Many times I wondered what it would be like to be her, bungy corded to the sissy bar? Remember the glass of water? That shut her up for a second! From the lipstick kisses to the made up little girls, she knew how to push your buttons…to make you angry or to make you laugh. Aunt Bunny, I will miss you dearly.

    My prayers are with you. Now there is another angel in Heaven that can take care of my baby girl. May God give you the peace and comfort you need during this difficult time. I know the journey will be hard but when you feel like you’re not strong enough to go on, look towards the Lord because His strength gave me the strength and the courage to make it when I lost my daughter and I know He’ll do it for you too. God bless you. Angela Curry
