Ricky and Shirley Fail, Rincon, GA

My deepest sympathy on your loss. I worked with her, and have many good memories of her. I moved away, but came back, and Joyce was one of the first Southern Bell people I ran into. We had a good catch-up conversation. We would run into one another and chat. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers to her family, who she loved very much. RIP Joyce.

Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. Joyce was a long time friend and we worked together at the phone company when we were young. I was fortunate to live with the Davis' when I first came to Savannah as a young girl and will always think of her as another sister. May God bless your family in this time of need.

Linda and I are sadden by Joyce's death. She was a friend to all MRS members and the Rose Dhu community. David, be strong my friend during this very difficult time. was a great lady and friend to all MRS members and the Rose Dhu community the passing

LTC John A. SCARBOROUGH, Savannah, GA

My condolences to the Sloan family for their loss. Death is never easy as it is not part of God’s original purpose. Kind words never really take the pain away. In the past, when I have lost a loved one, the words found in the Bible book of Revelation 21:3,4 have brought me some comfort. It allowed me to see that death is only a temporary state as our Heavenly Father promises to permanently due away with this cruel enemy. I hope your family can also find some comfort with this promise.
