    Mere words can't sum up what you meant to me, Joyce. From the age of 5 you treated me as one of your own. You and Walt were my 2nd pair of parents growing up. Those who knew you were blessed to know one of God's angels in the flesh. Till we see each other again. Love you.

    Joyce Hinson was like a second mother to me during my college years and into young adulthood. Any who spent time with Joyce could not deny what a bright light of joy, compassion, and love she infused into this world. What a blessing to have known her, learned from her, and to have shared laughter, the BEST meals, and lazy Sunday “storytelling” afternoons in her home. Joyce - you are treasured and loved beyond measure. May the long time sun Shine upon you All love surround you And the pure light Within you Guide your way on Light, love, prayer, healing, and blessings to Waylon, Walt, and crew. -Drake
