|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 the 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.
"Miss you more than ever my dear sister. So many things to tell you. Shedding a tear for you today but smiling because I know you are in a peaceful place. Miss you. Love you."
"Joyce, four years and it seems like yesterday to me. I so remember our chats, and emails when we lived in different cities, and then go back further to the good memories of sharing an apartment together and all the fun we had. You and I took some wonderful trips together and oh my but the shopping was fun too! I miss you dear friend. Cathy"
"Wow! I can't believe it has been 4 years since you passed away. I can still remember when I saw you and you were full of joy and love. I miss you everyday! I know you are watching down on us. xo"
"Joyce, couldn't agree more with your sister - missing you so many times as I too think of picking up the phone to chat! I know that you watch over all of us and that is comfort..........always remembered and loved. Cathy"
"I think of you Joyce, every day and miss you more than ever. Wish I could pick up the phone and talk to you and hear you laugh. Wish I was looking forward to a visit. Wish we were together making one more healthy recipe. Looking forward to seeing you again some day. Love you."
"Joyce was such an and amazing person, she treated me like her niece and showed so much love. I will never forget going over to her place for big thanksgiving dinners and sharing so many wonderful memories. Aunt Joyce shares a special place in my heart. Miss you xox.. Heaven is lucky to have you. xoxo"
"I miss my dear friend so much. I think of her daily and long for the special times we had together--talking, sharing and laughing. I wish I could make reservations at the Mandarin and meet her for lunch like we used to do. Life is not always fair, but even though Joyce is not with us anymore, I hope she knows how much we miss her. Love you forever, Ruth"
"Three years Joyce - it seems like yesterday. I think and pray for you often......you are so missed by us all. We know that you have special angel wings now and look over us..........God Bless You always. Love Cathy"
"Joyce doesn't seem real - I so miss our long chats and those amazing laughs we shared.............I do however know that you have found peace .............bless you...........love Cathy"
"Miss you so much today and everyday. Think of you always. Miss our lengthy lunches and talks and just being together to share our thoughts, our troubles and everything else in between. You will always be to me the best friend anyone could ever have. Until we meet again my friend, Love you, Ruth"
"May you be surrounded with love on your 67th - heaven truly gained an angel.I miss you! love cathy"
"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."
"POSTED ON BEHALF OF JOYCE'S FRIEND, RUTH VANDENBURG
FOR MY VERY BEST FRIEND WHOM I WILL NEVER FORGET
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.
"Remembering Joyce today, the first anniversary of the day she went home to Heaven. Miss her every day. Looking forward to the day I see her again."
"Hi Wendy, Ron and family,
I was very sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. I have thought of her often over the years and fondly remember our young years in the Extra-Central St. neighbourhood building forts, riding bikes, then going to teen dances and finally as a great bridesmaiid Kindest regards Irene"
"Always will remember how positive Joyce would be and the laughs we had when we were roommates in Toronto.......even our shopping trips were full of laughter......we counted our pennies but always planned for a clothes shopping spree and our yearly vacations.........we never tired of each other.......... I do miss you Joyce and our long phone chats.! You are in my heart always. Cathy"
"Remembering Joyce as we approach her Birthday. I remember her big heart; her wise advice; her laugh; her strong opinions; our telephone conversations; our weeks together; our shopping trips; how brave she was - and much more. Miss her more than ever. Love you, Joyce"
