Condolences For Joyce L. Alge
Mike, Diane, and Family
What precious tributes to this beautiful first cousin i’ve been privileged to read on Facebook. I was grateful to read a little more about her life on this website, too, and know that my memory was correct- I’m sure that I was present at her wedding to Keith. I was 7 but do remember a beautiful couple! All of my recollections of Joyce involve her smile and laugh and her tender love and interest in people! Thank you to her children and to Paulette especially for sharing pictures of family fun times on Facebook. May you have peace in Christ, and joy and laughter together with the tears God gives us for our use, as you keep her memory in your hearts!
Cousin Betsy Wilson Frater
