    I will always remember her smile and sweet disposition. She always looked at things in a positive way or otherwise would shake her head and smile. A friend to all and she adored her family. God bless them.

    Well, Cousin Joyce this is my third time trying to send this. I need your commuter skills. Joyce and I were close cousins. We grew up together, Joyce spent a lot of time at our house because Aunt Emma worked. My parents, Aunt Pean and Uncle Carl were like second parents. Joyce and I went to the same elementary and spent may summers swimming in the neighborhood pool. I can still see her with curly blond hair tying to ride my “big girl bike”. Our families had fun gatherings and we talked about those times frequently as adults. She was like a little sister and I loved her dearly.
    Love and prayers to Shelly, Brianna, and family,
    Sue & Mike Boulanger
