    Gilbert Family,
    I can’t even imagine how hard this must be for all of you. It’s so hard to think of daily life without Joyce in it for all of you. An amazing woman, family to so many of us, hardworker and Christian are words I think of when I think of her.
    My heartfelt thoughts and prayers to you all. Robert, I am sending you a huge hug and kiss.
    Still Missy to you 🙂

    Gilbert family – I’m so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. I have many fond memories of times with you all on the farm, hayrides after fall football games. I praise God for Joyce’s life and the way she and Martha always made us feel welcome. May God continue to comfort you all in the coming days.
