I was so sorry to hear about Joyce. She was so much fun when we were younger. My heart and prayers goes out to her family, there in Missouri and here at home in Beaver Dam.

I first met Joyce after we became neighbors in the Heatherwood Subdivision in Blue Springs. I remember first talking to her at the YMCA, where we both were members. She used to bring her kids and they'd play (board) games while she worked out. For years, she, two other neighbors and I walked our dogs throughout the neighborhood. Joyce was, at times, hard to keep up with on those walks--she was fond of walking very quickly despite her shorter stature. I always think of Joyce as fun-loving--she liked to laugh and be silly and could find humor in most any situation. Once, when we (fellow neighborhood dog walkers) went to visit her in the hospital, she was making jokes and laughing when most people probably would have been crying or at least very down. She was quite a character and, although she has not been able to walk with us for the past few years, due to her health, we continue to miss her upbeat conversations. She could make even the most mundane situation, such as a dog walk, interesting and fun!

So sorry to hear about Joyce. She was so much fun to be around. I loved hanging out with her and doing the silly skits with Jeff, Michelle, Stacy, and Joyce. We seemed to always make the kids laugh...even if we didn't really know the script or what we were doing. If it didn't make the kids laugh, we were still laughing. She had a heart to serve and boy did she serve the children's ministry. She had a heart of gold. She will be missed by so many people and she touched so many lives. She was a servant to God and I can't imagine how many little lives she touched with her smile and happiness. Praying for y'all. The Morrison's - Phil, Deb & Jordan
