As time goes on I still cant believe you are no longer here with us. They say times heals all but the pain is still so deep. Always know Momma that we all miss you so much.
Looking back growing up, I wish that things had been better for you. That you wont had to work so hard just to make end meet.
You will always be missed and loved so much by all of us.
Hope that heaven is filled with "Joy" and happiness.
Love ya Jewell Box ..
Mom, at this moment a month ago we said goodbye. I am not dealing with this well because I miss you so deeply. I know you are in God's care and that is so comforting but this hole in my heart yearns to talk with you again. You are always my Mommy- forever love!
Tomorrow will be one month since you left us and it feels like forever.
There have been so many times that I have almost dialed your number wanting to let you know what is going on in my life and Samantha's (planting flowers, taking Sam to the doctor or just talking about the local gossip)
I have put a bird feeder out in my back yard facing the lake in your memory and hoping that I have a few of the type of beautiful birds you had when you looked at your bedroom window)
The pain is still so fresh in my heart that the time of healing hasnt even began.
I am very selfish in that I want you back with us with no sickness or pain
But I know you are in a better place without pain, sickness or breathing problems.
Moma I love you so much
Its is very hard to go in your house and little bedroom and you arent there.
It feels so empty without you in it.
I wish there was a way you could give us a sign that you are with us someday.
Life on this earth is short but so many memories of us growing up with you as our Mom and Dad ...
Love you always...
It has been 24 days. 16 hours and 20 minutes since we said goodbye. The pain isn't letting up and I miss you so much Mama. I know you are with Jesus and He spared you from more suffering but i selfishly wasn't ready to say goodbye. Oh I miss you terribly. Thank you Mom for being the leader, the Mom and Dad both, the encourager, the one who will forever be in my heart. As long as in living my Mommy you'll be......until we meet again. God thank you for watching over her.
Peggy I know God will give you peace and the hope that one day you will see your Mom again. She is Home now and through God's Son Jesus our homecoming will be so much more blessed one day. Prayers for you and all the family.
To the Testerman Family: My prayers and deepest condolences are with you. No one can take the place of a mother's love and her touch in our lives. Each of you in your uniqueness and accomplishments are a testimony to her excellence in life. Her legacy lives on in and through you.
Momma- you raised us to be strong, confident, faithful, ethical, compassionate and courageous. We have flown from the nest and your legacy lives on through us. While we stand tall we are weak with emptiness and were not ready to let u go. Jesus take care of Mamma! Forever Love!
I miss you so much Mom.. you are in a better place, no suffering, no pain...
My sisters and I love you so much. I dont think you will ever know how much...
Debbie, Connie, Peggy and Susan -
I have been thinking of the four of you so much lately. My my deepest and most sincere condolences are yours during this most difficult time. I know where you are in this terribly difficult process, and I want you to know that it does become more bearable. I love each of you, and I always felt very close to your sweet Mother. Take care of yourselves - that was her greatest concern. Much love, Deb (Coffey Icenhour)
Debbie, Connie, Peggy and Susan - My sincere condolences in the passing of your mom. She was such a lively, energetic and delightful person who loved you all very much. My parents thought the world of her. The last time I saw her was at Selu when she came to a picnic with Barbara Aldridge. She looked as pretty as ever and had that wonderful smile. Please know I am praying for you. God bless.
R I P Joyce, your smile will be missed in Riner, BUT your smile is surely welcomed in Heaven
My deepest sympathy and condolences. I have had many people help shape my career and Momma Joyce was one for sure. She always had a smile and great advice when I needed it. I worked with Joyce at the Fire Department until she retired. I spoke to her about 2 months ago, and as always she had encouragement and praise for how proud she was of my accomplishments. I will miss Momma Joyce.

Susan and family - so sorry to hear and read of your mother's passing. My deepest sympathy and condolences. Rhonda Moran Bishton and family
I have cherished Joyce as a friend, a mentor and as a gardening master for many years. I have passed on many of the lessons she taught me about composting, gardening and living life to my girls and now my grandchildren. Joyce was an extraordinary woman that I will continue to cherish.
A dear lady who always spoke her mind. Heaven will be a better place for having her. Deepest sympathies to her family.
Joyce, She was a great neighbor and friend. We will miss her stopping by and talking. She was such a special lady to everyone. God Bless you all
Joyce will be missed greatly. Prayers go out for the family.
