I greatly regret the fact that I am unable to attend cousin Joyce's funeral. Age, health, distance and weather all contribute to this demise. My best memories of Joyce stem from my youth and the opportunities I had to spend weeklong vacations with the Uncle Bob Osborn family at their family farm. Those are among my fondest childhood memories. All of my life I heard loving reports about Joyce and her family from my mother, Joyce's Aunt Bessie who loved her and her family dearly. From all of the conversations I ever experienced with or about Joyce, I am sure she has joined her pre-deceased family in heaven. I am sure God has blessed Joyce with eternal life. I rejoice for her knowing that is true. I offer my condolences to her surviving family and friends. Aden Doyle.
