    Mama Joyce was a wonderful woman and it was an honor knowing her. Her daughter has been my best friend for over 30 years. I remember back in the late 80s when I would go over to their home and wait for Jennifer to punk out her hair and get all dressed up to go out with me and other friends. Mrs. Snyder was always so friendly to me while I waited for hours and hours (big grin). She would see us off for the evening and would always be waiting up for us when we got back after going to the "movies". She would talk with us about the finer details of all of the "movies" we saw......She was quite the investigator. Mrs. Synder was there through all of the most wonderful and the most difficult event of my life and I always appreciated the effort she put into being there. She will be greatly missed. I loved her dearly. I hope to see her again one day....and we'll have the best meal in the best shiny diner the Lord has.
