14 Condolences for Linda “Joyce” Tabor

  • Praying for you guys.
    Even though there is joy in the homegoing, there is sorrow in your loss. Thinking of you at this tender time.

  • Looking forward to when Joyce and Larry would visit was always the highlight of my summer growing up. I’m lucky that she made me 2 cross stitch, one at birth, and one at graduation. I have the grad one hanging on my wall. She was so special, made me feel special, would paint my fingernails that classic pearl, that I swear was made just for her. When I’d start to cry because their visit was over, she would say ‘it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later’
    See you later Joyce. I love you.
