To the members of Joyce's family. Joyce was very special to me. I was her Sunday school teacher. Although, she was unable to attend our class for the last few years, our members, and I kept in touch with her. When I sent her letters, or cards she always called to thank me, and our conversations were a blessing to me. I know that she is now in the loving Arms of Jesus, and she is with those loved ones who were waiting to greet her in her heavenly Home. I pray God will comfort all of you, and all of us who mourn her loss. Love, Jo
