I considered Joyce my grandmother as she was once married to my late grandfather but more than that, she always treated me and my family as hers. I spent many days in my youth at her house when she lived in Hidden Valley. I will always cherish those days. She always stayed in touch with me throughout her life and even though she wasn't in the best of health, she visited me often while I battled my own health issues. She was a very loving and caring woman who I will greatly miss. My heart goes out to all of her family and loved ones. No more suffering Joyce for you are in a much better place. Until we meet again, may you rest in peace. I love you. Casey Looper & Family
