    My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).

    I met Joyce through ancestry research. She is the great niece of my grandmother Gladys N. Payne Henson. Joyce helped me find other family members I was not aware of. Thank you Joyce I will miss our emails and communication. I hope to still connect with other family members of the Payne family. Thank you, you will be missed.

    Cousin Joyce was ten years older than me. The last fifteen years are so we became fast friends on e-mail with a love of family history both the Polk's and Macon's. I was fortunate to visit her about ten years ago on a trip to Houston. We had great memories of growing up.
