Brian, Bruce and families. I'm sorry I couldn't make it to Aunt Joyce's funeral. I guess it just wasn't in the cards. We all had a lot of great times together on the farm and at your home in Waldemar. She will certainly be missed as is Uncle El. Senior years catches up to most of us, except for those that leave us at an early age. Hoping to see you in the near future. May God wrap His arms around you, and comfort you, as you again journey thru this grieving time of life.
