    We will miss Joyce and send condolences to Vanessa and her family. I heard so many stories about the days during our parents childhood and visits to Halesboro and Bogata. Joyce’s cousin Tedd Craddock Grayson, who was my mother, was close to Joyce and visited often in their youth and early adulthood until we children took up their time.
    I hope you have many happy memories to comfort you.

    Vanessa: I am also Tedd Craddock Grayson’s daughter and knew cousin Joyce all my life. I always admired her sense of style. She was always the best hostess and loved to entertain in her lovely home in Irving. When I lived in Dallas from 1975 -1980 I got to know her and Bill and you much better. Mother passed on March 13, 2007 and Daddy passed on December 3, 2010. I tried to call you then, but could never get a good phone number. I know you will miss your mother as will I.
