Joyce, you were always very kind and generous to everyone around you, helping anyone in need. We had a lot of laughs sitting on your porch enjoying the sun. I was so proud to have you as a big sister. Love you, Sandy
Sandy, Here and there
You were a great mother like figure to me, you were there when I needed someone to bounce ideas or problems off. It's gonna be hard to remember I can't just ring to say gday and shoot the breeze. Graham xx

Joyce, my very dear friend, it's still incredibly hard for me to believe your not here. I will miss our chats that were always filled with laughter, and your absolute loyalty to those who you were close to.
May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
