Frank I am so sorry that I will not be attending the service today but will say some prayers for you and the family. I am deeply sad for your loss. I enjoyed talking with your mom so much on your BIG birthday party and always enjoy hearing the stories from your childhood. I admired your mom so much. May God's love comfort you and your family during this difficult time.

To Steve and the Crorey Family,
I am so happy that I was able to meet Joyce when she came to Thanksgiving Dinner several years ago in Austin. She was such a wonderful, loving, and lively addition to our traditional event of many, many years. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Ms. Crorey,
We only had the pleasure of meeting you once at Frank and Yvette's Wedding Reception. You left a lasting impression on us both as a kind and gentle soul. We both could tell how much you loved your family and how very proud you were of each and every one of them.

God's speed to you precious lady. Prayers for the sweet family you leave as tribute and testimony of how you lived your life.

Your Mom is your Mom
Nobody can replace her.
She does or has done for you.
Nobody can compare to her.
Only GOD can love you more than she does.
She's only one person that matters most.
N0 matter where she is in Heaven.
There's nothing like a mother's love.
I sincerely thank you Frank and Elaine,Steve for allowing me to be the care provider to a wonderful woman I enjoyed my time that I spent with her and will always cherish it and love her.

I met you one day as a stranger and left feeling like I have known you and let my life. You were beautiful inside and out. You made me feel like family and a while I grew to love you like a sister I never had. I looked up to you for your strong will and independent personality. The Lord broke the mold when you were born cause they will never be another like you my angel. You will forever be in my heart and thoughts. The Lord put you in do my life for a reason and I about great full every day for it. I love you and one day I will see that beautiful smile again.

mimi, i am so glad you got to live a wonderful life. even when you weren't dealt the cards you'd hoped for, you made the best out of it. you were constantly smiling and joking with people. you stuck by your family through every situation; and you never once complained about being the shoulder to cry on. from the moment i met you, you made me feel like i was one of your own. i'm not super close with either of my grandmothers, so you were the closest one to that. you made me feel apart of the family, and i instantly knew i could trust you. you were such a big part of my adolescence and you will forever leave your footprints on my life and who i am. thank you so, so, so much for loving me as your own.

Mimi Joyce,
There are no words to describe how I or anyone feel! I want to thank God for allowing all of our paths to cross. You were such an amazing woman. I will never forget your beautiful smile, your contagious laugh and your hugs! You will be greatly missed.

My condolences to the family.

Joyce was a person that once you met her, you will never forget! She had a joy for life. She loved her daughter and her grandchildren who were the love of her life. She always spoke of her sweet husband with longing and tears in her in her eyes. I know she was loved by many, myself included and will be greatly missed! Alas, she is with her true love and singing praises to God!
My condolences to the family.

Joyce,(sis) what can I say, there are not words to describe how much pain is in my heart and how much you will be missed. You are more then a sister to me, you are my best friend. I love you dearly and you will always be in my heart. This family will always have a void and feeling of emptiness and I will hold you close to my heart daily.

Mimi from the moment I met you I knew you were someone special and that I loved you. You have been my friend, Mimi and at times a mom to me. I loved hanging out with you and I knew no matter what I would be laughing a lot with you and walking away with a smile.

I love you so much and I will miss you more than you will ever know.
By: Cassidy Crorey Jul 15, 2017
Mimi, I will miss your contagious smile, your drive to lighten up a whole room of people, and most of all, your advice. I am so grateful to have known you as my Mimi and I truly will cherish the memories I have been blessed to share with you. Love you Mimi so much.
