    Dear Uncle Perry & Family, We are so sorry to hear of Joyce's death. This has been such an incredibly difficult year and we know only too well what it feels like to be so sad and to miss someone so much. Please know that you have our prayers and best wishes. Joyce is now at peace....I pray for His peace for those that will miss her so much. In His Love, Cassandra (Casey), Sierra & Samantha (Sammi) Holt Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies" John 11:25 (NIV)
