    My sweet Aunt Joyce, I’m going to miss you so much ā¤ļø My heart is hurting so much right now. But I want you to know that I will be okay. I know you are resting in the arms of Jesus and have no more pain and have a brand new body. You are with your loved ones. I can see the smile on your face. I will see you again one day when the Lord calls upon me. I love you so much Aunt Joyce.

    My dear sweet Mom. My second Mom.I will miss you so very much. You, and your whole family were so good to me and mine. All the times you fed us and sent us tastes of things you had made. Gavyn growing up visiting you and Paco and devouring your candy dish….he could do no wrong at your house. You, shaking your head at me and Ruby chilling on the porch and knowing everyone’s business, you laughed at us but made sure we shared the gossip. You and your family made the block a lot of fun. It shows as we moved away as did you, but you had a whole new group of people on the new block who loves you so very much. Time gets away and we never did the bingo or boat thing we had intended to do. You were available to me, always, on our many phone sessions. You experienced a lot of personal tragedy the last few years but you stayed available to others in theirs. I could go on and on…but mostly Thank you for entering our lives and being exactly who you were. I will never forget all that you were to me. I, was blessed to of seen you and let you know how much you meant to me…not everyone gets to do that….A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I know you are looking down and no longer in any pain, there is some comfort in that. I hope you are proud of all of us as we try to move forward without you. Miss you so much already….Chelle
