Kelly and Kevin, I just heard about Joyce this afternoon and my heart breaks. She was such a good friend to me when we moved to Westfield Dr. for many years. I always admired her grace and beauty! She was always so kind. I have really missed her since her illness took her to Georgia. Love to all of you during this time❤️ Pat and Randy White

Kelly and Kevin, I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Joyce was a precious lady. I worked for her, at Proffiitt's, for years. Lots of great memories.
Please know that I am praying for you and your families.

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8- "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort.
