Joyce, Roger and families.
I am saddened to learn that you have lost your sweet mama. I have such good memories of her during the time that she kept my becky and baby kelly. She was so kind to me during a difficult time in my life; that was over 40 years ago but I remember vividly how she and your dad were always good to me and my girls.
May God bless each of you and comfort you as only He can.
