Tim and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I last saw Joyce in December, when she told me her plans to spend Christmas Day with you and your family. By the time I returned at the end of January, I think she was gone up to your house and Rebecca moved into the Waterford house. Your Mom was wonderful. I hope Rebecca enjoys Waterford as much as I did growing up. The neighbors are special.
Wishing you and yours peace and love.
