  1. To the family of Joyce Afton Will,

    My family and I are sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. Although we don’t know your family personally, we understand that the loss of a loved one can take its toll on your emotional, mental, physical, and most importantly, your spiritual health. The Bible tells us to take comfort. John 5:28,29 says, ‘All those in the memorial tombs will hear my voice and come out.’ Would you be interested in knowing what is required of us so as to be there? Then please feel free to contact me for free Bible based literature.

    I have a lot of fond memories of Aunt Joyce–mostly of the person who was smiling 99% of the time, content with life and family.

    My first trip on an airplane and first trip out of the Midwest was to visit Don and Joyce when I was in grade school. This was in the early 1970’s. They were so gracious and giving, those times will never be forgotten.

    She was a smart, kind, and funny lady.
