Dearest "Baby" Brother David,
I continue to miss you so very much, and pray for you every day. You know that I LOVE YOU, FOREVER AND ALWAYS. I just hope that I helped to make your life a bit more peaceful and fulfilling, and definitely more humorous. I so enjoyed sharing time, and memories with you. I know that you are with Daddy and Mother; and, although I was looking forward to sharing many more years, and memories, with you here, I will see you again. Once more, know that I LOVE YOU, and only wish I could have protected you more. xoxo Your "Older" Sister, Joyce
Joyce J. Pandelis -- Your "Big" Sister
It was so good to visit you at Oakwood Cemetery for your 68th Birthday yesterday, June 18th, 2016. I wanted to also wish you a Happy Father’s Day today. The flowers in the Narthex of the First United Methodist Church, Hueytown, Al, were dedicated to you today (from me and your “baby sister,” Judy); and, everyone, said how much they missed you.
I still cannot believe it has been almost 6 months since you left us. We miss you so very much, and will forever love you dearly. Thinking of you every day; and, your Veteran’s Honor Roses are doing so well (both at your home in Pleasant Grove, and there with you in Welatka, FL). David, I so miss you, but know you are happy with Mother and Daddy. Much Love, Always, and Forever, dearest “baby” Brother. xoxo Joyce
