Joyce and family.
Many fun memories are going through our minds now. The laughter at all of our Christmas parties. My dad, uncle Jake, and Arnie always created many fun times. We will always miss those times but are so blessed to know that they are all enjoying each other’s company in Heaven.
God’s blessings to you and your family during this time.
