Dearest Uncle Roger, my condolences for your recent loss of your beloved wife. Cousin Jim and John Ford also my deepest condolences for the loss of your nurturing Mother. May your family find peace during this difficult time but remember that Aunt Joyce is watching over you and she loves you all dearly.

My deepest condolences to you, Jim and all of your family. May God provide comfort and peace during this difficult time and in the days ahead.

Dear Roger, Jim, John, and Families,
I am so sorry for your very sad loss at this time. I hope and pray that God will lift up your heart and give each and everyone of you the strength you need each passing day to carry on.
Joyce was a near and dear friend for many years to my mother, Charlotte Lenhoff. Since I was a little boy I can remember their visits together of great caring conversations about their families and much laughter of Joy, which is short for Joyce!

My love to all of you. I know you all are suffering a great loss. She loved you all so very much. I will always...

Roger and Family:
I am so sorry for your loss. Even though you were my cousin, I also considered Joyce my cousin too.
We shared a common bond with our birthdays being on the same date, and also our love for corresponding, which we had done for many years. I always looked forward to notes and letters from Joyce and the unusual stamps she put on the envelopes. We will miss her at our annual Diehl Corn Roast. Now Joyce can "rest in peace" and be pain free. She had many...
