Uncle Bill and all my cousins I am so thankful that I was able to come and visit aunt Joyce last year. Sharing all those meals and conversations with my extended family is a treasured memory. I love all of you and in the days to come I will especially miss all the stories mom and aunt joyce told of their life as children.
May our triune God's loving comfort surround and strengthen you during this time of sorrow.
In deepest sympathy,

Throughout my life I have always felt my Aunt Joyce's love. She was such a gentle loving woman and I always felt Christ's love through her. I know I will see her in heaven, but I will miss knowing she is here for all those she loves and who love her. My momma dearly loved her sisters and I am happy they have been reunited.
