Let the memory of Joyce be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Joyce (Britt) Armitage, 65, born on July 12, 1947 and passed away on February 8, 2013. We will remember her forever.

Feel no guilt in laughter, Joyce knew how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that she's not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever, Joyce would not want you to.
She'd hope that you could carry on they way you always do.
So talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The times you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone might say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day
that brings Joyce back as clearly as though she were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that she is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And Joyce will live forever locked safely in your heart.

"Joyce, I've felt your presence around me and it is both comforting and warm to know that you are in a place of love. God made a special place in his heart for you and those of us left behind will, at some time, be with you. God bless you always."

God looked around his garden and found an empty space.
He then looked upon the earth and He saw your tired face.
So He put his arms around you, and He lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful for He only takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyes and He whispered, "Peace be Thine."
It broke my heart to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of me went with you, when Jesus called you home.
