So sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. She was a wonderful, joyful person. Whenever I think of her, she is smiling. She was always giving and caring and was always kind to me. God has her with Him now, and though we will all miss her, she now has no more pain. God bless all her family mourning her loss, but rejoicing in the time they had her in their lives. Love, Georgette

When I think of you, I see your sweet smile. That is how I will remember you. I have tons of memories of time I spent with you. I am very sad to see you depart from this world, but I know you are not in anymore pain. I also know you are now with our family members who have been waiting on the other side. I can only imagine the amazing view you now have & the immense love you are feeling in the presence of our Heavenly Father. Say hi to Papa, Ben, & my Grandma Alice (who loved you so much) for me. I cannot wait to be with all of you again one day. Enjoy the view, Joyce. I know it has to be amazing. You have surely earned it. Love you always, Michelle - your first Payne family niece :) <3
