Dear Mindy, Melissa and families, Steve and I are so sorry for your loss. We know how you took care of Joyce and she was so lucky to have you and her grandkids close by. I have missed seeing you walk around the neighborhood. Those walks and your constant attention probably kept her here longer. We have been thinking of all of you during this hard time.
