Our hearts are heavy at the loss of Brenda “Baby Joyce” . Her loss leaves a big empty space in her families lives and in Marianna. She was truly one of a kind with a big heart like her momma and her husband. The words “Snow ball man” will never mean the same without her laughing and calling her Uncle Tony by that name ! That was their tease to each other! and she was “Baby Joyce”! We will miss you Brenda. Jimmy , Lela, Keith, and families we love you. Prayers for strength to get thru these coming days. Our hearts are with you.
I am so sorry for the loss of your family member and my friend!As the days come give way to your memories and the life she lived. As I shall think of her.
Jimmy, Phil, Lela. So sorry for your loss. We are never ready to lose our mate or parent. May you feel God’s Comforting Arms around you during this time and give you strength. God Bless.
Lela, I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother!! Your entire Fidelity family will be thinking of you in the days ahead. Love, Paula
