    My sincere sympathies to you, cousin! All I can say is her suffering is over and at peace. God has her now and forever more. So sorry we have been so distant all these years. We moved to Florida in 1969 and contact has been brief but saw them both several times here. The last time I saw aunt June was the time Joyce and Jack brought her to Florida!!
    My thoughts and prayers are with you both. That’s one of my hardest thing was loosing my mom! And my husband Dan. Hold on to the memories, that will get you through this hard time! Much love, Linda

    To Joyce and family, My thoughts are with you, your sister and family during this difficult time as your mother transitioned from life as we know it. The times I answered the phone and it was your mother asking “Is Joyce there?” — she had the sweetest, softest voice and we would chat. I always enjoyed those mini-conversations. One thing for sure, she loved her family.

    Thinking of you all, with sympathy, Marianne Peak
