Dear Gloria, Sue Lou & Charles, I loved Aunt Joyce and have such happy memories of her. I loved going to your house as she was so funny and such a wonderful cook! I can hear her now yelling at us to get up that we had to go to work at the tobacco barn. She was a wonderful, hardworking person & I know she will be missed by her family and friends. She made me Smile! Ed and I send our prayers and love to you all. Love, Kathy & Ed White
