  1. To all of the family,

    I am so very saddened to hear about your Mom, Joyce,… I have been thinking about her and praying for all of you for the past year. I last saw Joyce this past summer at Joby’s house and she was looking cheery and most upbeat. We chuckled about past antics with the family and how much she loved all of you. If ever there was a “lady”, it was her. The only thing that comforts me is knowing that she will be with Ray, and laughing for eternity.

    Most sincerely, and with love,
