Connie, the service for your mother was so beautiful and the words your husband spoke touched my heart! Joyce was one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever known and also a helping hand whenever needed. I have always admired and loved her a lot!l. I know this is a very difficult time for you and I am so sorry. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that she is with Jesus now and that you will see her again! Although my heart is sad, I am thankful that I have been able to view her service on line. With love, prayers, and deepest sympathy,

Randy and Connie you are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. You had a very sweet Mother and I enjoyed our last conversation at the IGA in Four Oaks, while shopping. I am sure she is a happy woman today, having a reunion with her loved ones in heaven. The good thing about her death is that we will see her again one day. You have some good memories and they will stay with you always. Love, Tony and Kathern Johnson
