Dear Jim and family, It is with both sadness for the loss of a sweet friend, and happiness for her new found peace and comfort that I write this. Joyce was there for me several times over the years with quiet pearls of wisdom and encouragement, which were very much appreciated. She didn't always have much to say, but made her words count. She was loved by many, and as I remember her today, more than one smile has snuck up on me...especially when recalling many years ago as we shared a flight to Montreal together,for a Fantasia weekend. When asked what she collected, her answer to me...was dust bunnies...loved you Joyce, sincere and unpretentious, and just a little bit mysterious...Sue and John xo

Our thoughts are with you at this very trying time.

Jim and family, I am so sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. From what little I knew of her she was a remarkable woman. I will never forget how kind and comfortable she made me feel in her presence. Truly a gentle spirt who will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched. May you all find comfort in the memories of Joyce which will live on each of you for years to come.

To Jim & "all" the Watterworth family, Joyce was such a sweet person who could "whoop" it up with all of us. Many a good time was had by all in her presence. Joyce will be sorrily missed by us. I know the family circle will never be the same, but, we were all fortunate to have Joyce as long as she was here. She's gone to a better place and is out of pain now. Hugzzzzzzzz....Donna & Jr.

Although we did not see each other often, we always had long chats when we did. I will miss that. Just remember her as the warm hearted mother type she was. Love you all. Joan

Please accept my sympathies on the passing of Joyce. I did not know her, but my father Merv Weber, who also suffers from the horrible life with scleroderma, has spoken about Joyce. They conncected with each other regarding scleroderma. I know that she provided some very helpful info and tips to my dad when he was first diagnosed. It is truly an awful thing to live with. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

To the Watterworth Family, May each of you find comfort in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18) He has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) Take care,
