My father adored Joyce and her mother Mary Catherine. He always looked forward to their visits, and I learned to appreciate her kind and loving personality. It was always a Joyous occasion when she was with us. She and Joe were always supportive and helped make my wedding reception a hilariously fun event for the entire family. They knew how to enjoy each other and life, and shared their good spirit openly and honestly to me. We were all blessed to have her and Joe in our lives.

Sorry to hear of your mothers passing. She was a wonderful woman. She gave me my first high paying job watching Kenny & Jenny during the summer. Miss you all. Wishing you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Be patient with one another as the grieving process is very complex.

May the peace of God be with you through this difficult time.
My sincere condolences.

My deepest condolences to the family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Isaiah 25:8 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering. Acts 24:15 speaks of a resurrection, a time when God will reunite us with our loved ones again! I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.
