I am so sorry to hear about Mary. I am glad that I got to see her in March. I know that the Lord will be with you in this difficult time. My prayers will be with you.

As a child after a big Sunday dinner as
our parents were picking up the dishes from the table, you'd hear "KEEP YOUR FORK", we knew a great desert was about to be served. So Mary Joyce, keep your fork, for the best is about to come.
Tony, I'm so sorry that I can't be there for the visitation and funeral but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.Thank you for calling me back the other night so I had a chance to talk to both of you. Love, Joyce
