    My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, but death at any age is too soon. Death is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26). May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time. Click on the link for more comforting thoughts:

    I am so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing.

    Any time I think back to when I worked at the Color Inn, Joyce most certainly comes to mind. I have to admit that I have told the story of her losing the lens of her glasses many times! I’m sorry, but it still cracks me up 40 years later! Joyce was a wonderful person to have known. A sweet and first class lady.
