    Glen, Carroll and I are saddened by the news of Joyce's death. It was really a shock as we are sort of out of the Sour Lake loop. She was a dear sweet friend to us when we lived in Sour Lake and such a faithful member of our church community, Our Lady of Victory. I know that God has received her into His loving arms and will console you in your grief.

    We are so sorry, words cannot express the sadness we feel for you and your family. May God wrap HIS loving arms around each and every one of you, and I hope you are able to feel our love. We cousins have surely drifted apart, and that is my only regret. Finfi,g you again was such a joy and relief, our family is finally beginning to come back together to a point. One day, we will join Joyce, a,the rest of our lives ones in Heaven. We love each and every one.
