God has called one of his angels home. I remember Joyceas always cheerful and smiling. I fell in love with her the first time I met her. I feel very honored to have known Joyce. I know she will be missed by many. God has a plan and Joyce will be a big part of it. I am so sorry I was unable to make the visitations. I will always keep Joyce and her family in my heart.

I remember Mrs. Mills from the many timesI visited her son Kenny at their home behind the old French Lick School. She was always so very nice to all of uskidsand treated us great when wewould stop by. Itseems like soo many years ago now.But I guess it actually is.Joyce and Fred were fine people and they raised three fine boys, one of which (John)passed on not long ago. To the Mills family, always remember that our good friends are always in our thoughts.
