Dear Sue and Sandy,
I have such sweet memories of Aunt Joyce. She was always kind to all us kids. And she was such a good mom. She made the world better for having walked on it. That's a life well-lived. I know you girls will miss her terribly. I wish you could have had her longer. Love to you both, cousin Sally (Hardin) Odegaard
