Joe Joyce

JOYCE Joe The family of the late Joe Joyce give our heartfelt thanks to all those individuals and organisations, who cared for Joe in the final stage of his life and gave us all their unstinting support as well as care at a very traumatic time. In particular, our appreciation goes to the staff of The Dales Care Home, Draughton, with special thanks for the nurses who stayed with Joe throughout giving him care and comfort. Our thanks also To Dr Checker and Dr Pettit of Dynley House Surgery, Skipton, Dr Kai Ng of Town Head Surgery, Settle, Dr Kamath and all his Team at the Craven Centre, the North Yorkshire Police and Social Services along with the Ambulance Service, the Paramedics and Carers Resource for their collective care and expertise. Those friends and neighbours who have sent us messages of condolence along with so many individual memories of Joe have been both heartwarming and a comfort to us. The messages we have received are too numerous for us to reply to individually and we hope you will take this message of thanks and our family's appreciation to you all. As with so many others, Joe's funeral was held against the background of The Covid Regulations. We wish to thank those who made his funeral special in spite of the restrictions and in particular, those friends and neighbours who stood to pay their respects to Joe as his Funeral Cortpassed through Long Preston, to Canon Graham Bettridge who's words not only encapsulated the person Joe was and in so doing gave us great solace and to Duncan Robinson and his staff who guided us through the regulations and ensured that Joe was buried in a dignified and moving way.
