Your presence out shined your beauty and now that your presence is no longer here your beauty is etched in our memories. My namesake Alesia Ann is because of Joyce and it has marked my future with grace, humility, love, and nobility. Your character embodied those attributes as well. My daughter, Rudesia, remembers how you and your husband embraced us when we visited your home with genuine kindness and love. Although you are gone your love will carry us on.
