    Prayers for the family, especially Christine. My sweet Joyce, I loved you so much, friends since we were 19 years old.
    Words can never describe how this hurts me. You stood with me when I married, you were my confidant, my sister,
    my running mate. I can now only cherish our many times we shared and made special memories. Rest in Peace my loving and dear friend. Dee Dee
