I meet joyce when she started working at the T&B store almost 24 years ago. We both worked as cashiers and became almost instant friends. I would come over to her house alot and we would talk and drink coffee and we would walk around her yard and she would show me her plans for planting. The crazyest time I had was when we went to Biloxi mississippi to play slots. It was me, her, Buddy and another person I cant remember. The car broke down on the way back and a seat belt was tide to the bumper of the car that came to get us. We were whipping down the interstate at 55 ,65 miles an hour all the way home. I was sure we were gonna die. If I remember right joyce was stearing the car being towed without a bit of fear!! Ive had some wonderful times with joyce. And Im so privilaged to have loved her, and her love me in return. My heart hurts. My sympothy and love to all her family and friends. I have never known a greater women or had a greater friend
