I am so shocked to hear that my cousin Joyce has passed away. We spent many wonderful days together in our youth, and I will always remember her fondly. I wish so very much I could be there for her services, but it is just not possible at this time. All her family and friends have my deepest sympathies and prayers. Joyce, rest in peace.

I am shocked to hear of Joyce passing. My family and I lived in Calhoun for many years, where I grew up. I went to school with Kent and Joanie. My parents knew the Bledsoe's many years ago. My condolences and prayers to the family. RIP Joyce.
