Bryan and family,
You have had a year filled with much sadness. We are there with you in spirit and prayer. Joyce was a gracious woman and we loved her.. I'll always remember my first time to Virginia, 1972, and Joyce and WD made my visit a wonderful experience. WD had a garden like I never saw before! He gave me a jar of tomatoes and said to save them till New year's day. I was to cook them along with black eye peas! I did as instructed, and when I shared that with him, he declared that I was a real Virginian now! Your mom Bryan was a lovely lady. I will treasure my memories of her. She is with her Lord, her beloved husband and her baby. One day she'll be at the gates to welcome the rest of us.
With sympathy,
George and Gail
