Joyce was a friend of mine whom I will deeply miss. I will always cherish the good times that we shared together. She loved to party and have a good time especially during the holidays. My sister Nancy and I enjoyed going out to eat and shopping with Joyce. She was my home girl from Lynchburg and she will always be a member of the Barnett Family. Rest in heavenly paradise. Peace and Love♥️
