Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. Joyce was a great lady admired and loved by all who knew her, a profound influence on and inspiration to her children, a devoted wife and a cherished friend.
Her memorial is a living one, borne of the immensity of life she lived, a legacy manifest in the lives she touched.
Joyce was both friend and family to us. Her spunk was inspirational as was her love of family. She will be part of our us always. We feel so blessed to have all of you in our lives.

Joyce was not just our next door neighbor. She was our dear friend. We shared many good times together- dinners, trips, etc. Her greatest achievement was raising three children to be wonderful citizens. Her devotion to them and her loving husband cannot be matched. Deepest sympathy to all the Birks.

Joyce will be very much missed. I know I always learned something from her anytime we visited. She gave a meaningful devotion followed by good discussion. She knew her stuff. She loved her family and I suspect she was there with good advice over the years. So sorry Herb, I know it is a heartbreaking time. God Bless!!
