    Thore and the Meyer Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Joyce will be missed by all who she came into contact with. I know she brought a smile to my face whenever I would see her at the rink. You have lost a great wife, mother and grandmother and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Joyce would give my mom and I rides to my doctors appointments for my hearing because my mom didn’t like to drive. She would always be willing to do this, and it happened alot. She also made me Swedish pancakes in the morning when I had spent the night at their house playing with Jeff. She was a very kind and giving lady. She will be missed by all who knew her. May the Lord give you peace in this time of loss.

    Thor and family,
    Blessing to you and your family. Thank you for sharing your lovely wife and mother with us for a few years. It was an honor for me to get to know her and all of you. You are a beautiful family and an example of what God intended for love and families to explore while walking this earth. I pray you are comforted by the lovely memories you have collected along your journey together.
    Always, in God’s love!
