"Shw was the kindest and sweetest woman in the world and i was fortunate enough to have her as a mother. I miss you so, so much. The world is a much darker place without her light to brighten it. I could say so much but anyone who knew her already knows it all. I never met anyone who didnt love mama. Thank you so much for bringing me into this world and caring for me like you did. I hope that someday i can be as good a person as she was but that would be impossible
I love you mom. Keep jesus in line up there."

"I knew Joyce growing up next door to her in Detroit. We all had great fun together.  She always had a smile on her face and was a very loving person. God bless her family and may God guide you all in your time of grief."

"I didn't have a close relationship with my Aunt Joyce. It had been many many years that I had spent time with her as a child until an unfortunate event brought us together again. My Papa passed away in 2009 which brought her and my cousins to Michigan. We talked for a little bit about family as if she had always been in my life. It's unfortunate that it's things such as death that bring family together, but I'm glad that I was able to see her when she was in Michigan. Even after 20-25 years of not seeing Aunt Joyce, she has always been in my heart and I think about her frequently. She is now in her final resting place and joined by all the other angels that have gone before her. I love you and miss you Aunt Joyce! Rest in peace."

"I met Grandma Joyce in person in Februrary 1999 after having chatted with her sons Cloudy & Stormy on TalkCity. Eventually I ended up chatting to Papa and Mama as well as Aunt Robyn. We named them the Weather family and everyone always had a good time chatting to them. They were just as authentic when I met them face to face. Grandma was the sweetest and always gave the best hugs. It felt like she was pouring her soul into you when she got a hold of you. She held on tight and held on for the longest time. I spent many weekends in GA getting to know her. She and Papa spent many weekends in TN with us as well. I loved her long before she was my mother-in-law and when I only called her Mama. I continued to love her as Grandma and even when she was no longer my official mama. She will always hold that special place in my heart. I know I will always see her in Lucy and Luke. Luke has what I affectionately call her "butt-chin" since the moment he was born. Grandma wasn't especially fond of that name, but she took it all in good humor. No one can take her place, but I hope her legacy shines on through the love she freely gave to all she came into contact with. I can only hope my children have just a touch of Grandma's love for others. Rest in peace, Mamaweather. I love you."

"for my aunt, always in our hearts, you will be missed Aunt Joyce.... xoxox"

"I was so surprised and shocked last week when I heard the devastating news that my sister had passed away. I had talked to her last Tuesday evening and texted with her for quite a while last Wednesday. Even though today is tragic and such a sad event, we believe she was ready. Besides missing her deceased husband Frank, she was not in the best of health.
She leaves behind three sons, Schuyler, Christopher, and Jimmy.  Besides the previous mentioned, she also leaves behind Grandchildren, Amanda, Josh, Whitney, Jacob, Lucy, Luke, and Jason. She also had a great grandson named Kylan. Two sisters, Jean and myself and a brother Tom.  Additionally, a daughter in law Rhonda, her son Jeffrey, another daughter in law, Janet and her daughter, Makenzie. She still had relationships with her ex daughters in laws, Susan and Amy. She leaves many nieces, great nieces and nephews and cousins.  She was loved by many and will be missed by many. She was preceded by her parents, Schuyler, Kathleen, and Bob as well as a sister, Leslee.
She was more than my sister; she was a friend. Even though she was older than me, we still kept a relationship with each other. If we didn't talk for a while, you would never know because we would talk for hours when we would talk. We would text a lot as well.  
One time I flew down to see Jean in Florida. Joyce and I met half way by car, her from GA and me from Florida to have lunch and went to Walmart after lunch and just walked around.  It was a 4 hour drive each way but it was a fun day to have be with each other. I always appreciated her company.
Joyce enjoyed laughing and making others laugh. She always had a smile on her face and could brighten the darkest days. She was a very compassionate person. She cared a lot for her friends and family and would do anything to help them. She had the same care for anyone who needed help or a place to stay. She was one of the most loving and caring people that I have ever met.
Joyce enjoyed TV. She loved to watch TV. She enjoyed reading, and was quite the crafty person. Knitting, crocheting, and beading were a few of her hobbies.  She was crazy about dragons.
Joyce will always be remembered for her compassion, generosity and love for life. My sister was an example to everyone she met of how to live life. I am honored that Joyce was my sister and will look back on our time together with fond memories.
Sisters are different flowers from the same garden
Joycey, I will always remember you and the time we spent together. Your memory will live on in my heart forever."
