    Jesus prayed: "Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world." In Joyce's passing, his prayer has been answered. We rejoice that she is with her Lord and is beholding his glory. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Blessings Warren and Ellen

    I will forever cherish the memories of your last good day before you had your stroke. When I said to you, "Hi Mom, it's Shirley," you replied, "My Shirley?" "Yes Mom…your Shirley." You walked the entire length of the hallway back to your room without stopping. You sat in your big chair by the window without complaining. You initiated and participated in conversation with Brenda and I. You let me take your picture and didn't try to shy away from it. When I offered you a stick of watermelon gum, you accepted it readily, not once, but twice. I had to stop myself from telling you not to swallow it, just like you told us kids when we were little. We had you laughing at times, reminiscing about funny things from the past. Not sure who enjoyed it more–you, or Brenda and I. You will always be our Mom. You taught us well. Your job is done. I'm sure Dad was stomping at the bit waiting for you in Heaven. The love you showed to all your family was evident. We are sad at your passing because we will miss you because we loved you too. Forever on my mind and in my heart. You were after all…..MOM
