To the Beard family, I am so sorry for your loss

Such a sweet kind lady. Nearly 19 years ago she loved me into her family not like I was dating her granddaughter but like I was a grandson. Nanny was a jewel. Rest In Peace

Deborah Poe

Prayers for the Beard family. My deepest sympathy for the Beard families loss.

Dearest Family, I am so sorry for your loss and send my deepest condolences. One of my earliest memories of Joyce's kindness was when I was around 9 or 10 years old. I am 66 now, so that tells you that she displayed her kindness and care throughout her life. Joyce's christianity was present throughout her life and she shared it with so many of us. Words may not help, but the memories are of a "one of a kind lady" who was involved in bringing the word of the Lord to many.. We can share the knowledge that she is in Heaven and without pain or discomfort. My love to all!
