We want to say how very sorry we are for the loss of your Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma....Joyce was a sweet lady and a loving mother. We lived just down the street from each other in Brentwood, MO in the 70s. My brother Troy, Sr. and her daughter Cindy, got married shortly after we met. We enjoyed spending time with Joyce and Jamie (precious Jamie) and the rest of her children from time to time. We enjoyed many loving and memorable times with her and the children. Weddings, wedding showers, baby showers and birthday parties with all of our children. Two of her grandson's, Troy, Jr. and Tim are our nephews, that we love so much. I still see Cindy and keep up with as many others as possible. They will always be a part of our family. Joyce had a long life with children that loved her very much. God Bless all of you with peace and strength in the coming days. You are all in my prayers.
In Loving Memory,
Jean and Dave Alexander
