What a woman, what a life! I think we many times measure a woman by the man she married and the children she raised. While that is not necessarily appropriate in this day and age, Joyce was never really politically correct and that is why I believe she was so beloved. She raised wonderful children and was a great and loving wife and mother to them all. I think she is happy to be with the loved ones that went before her and will watch over the ones she left behind.
