Over 41 years ago Joyce, with her amazing creativity and love, made for us a wedding gift - a glittered goose egg, opened to reveal a bride and groom inside, and with our names and date on the back retrieved from our reception napkins. This beautiful ornament has hung on our Christmas trees ever since, including last year, as a testament to her great heart, energy and "above-and-beyond" generosity. We love telling our guests its story. We think of her every time we see it, and will continue to put the ornament in a prominent place on our trees going forward. Joyce made the world a better place, and as one of the older of our cousins, set a sterling example for the rest of us to model. God bless and comfort all of you who loved her; re-Joyce in knowing we will see her again "when Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation!"
