Tom, Christy and Shea, I did not know Joyce but heard a lot about her from Christy as well as others for whom she did some sewing. I know you’ve all been through a lengthy and difficult illness with her, but provided her with all the love and support that she needed. I’m sure that she will be much missed. In sympathy, Teresa
