"Joyce was angel who walked with us mere mortals. I didnt see Joyce very often or as often as I would have liked but when I did she always greeted me a genuine hug and a kiss on the cheek. It was usually at a Serbian wake or pomen service and I have to admit I always looked forward to hearing the church choir and especially Joyce, sorry Vukotich girls. She even had the voice of an angle. Joyce always seemed to go out of her way to show kindness to people. And for that she will be forever in my heart. Ill see you on the other side My Friend. "
