Having just lost my own Mother, you would think I would have some great philosophical statement to make. I have nothing but the hole in my heart just like you have. The right thing to say is that both a with the Lord and know a peace that we can only hope for. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love to all,
Jim and Lacey Poore

Joyce used to say (when I was a cheerleader), "Aileen, you can make the funniest faces cheerleading - I love to watch you." We were not close, but we were definitely friends.

The Doane family lived across the street from us in Clinton when their children were small. They were well loved on Hicks Circle, and we have never forgotten our neighbors.
I send my sincere condolences to all of you for the loss of Joyce.

So sorry to hear of you mother's passing, but I already hear the great rejoicing and "stories" floating among her friends and family in heaven!

I met Joyce when Mike was an eighth-grader at West Haven. I admired his work ethic and assumed correctly that it was a family trait. I learned from Roger what it was like for an eighth-grade boy to be surrounded by pregnant women. I saw Joyce and Darrell at many school functions watching Darlena and Dana go through the schools to graduation. It was a special pleasure to develop what I think was more than a student-teacher relationship with Ginger.
