Dear Donna, Brenda & Bruce
I was so sorry to hear that your Mom had passed away. Dianne called me later that day to tell me😕 I guess that I should have realized that her time was getting short, but the truth is I didn’t think that she was actually dying. Every time i’d go in to see her she’d be her old self, friendly, smiling and I’d always tease her about the candy she had in her room☺️ I was in about a couple of weeks before her passing, I knew that she hadn’t been eating, so I suggested maybe the ensure or boost. She did say that maybe she’d try it. But she probably just said that she try it so I’d be quiet☺️ She was always happy to see me, and treated me as though I was her niece. I truly loved Aunt Joyce, I will miss seeing her, when I go in to see Nan😕 Please know how you feel right now, I lost my Mum in March, as a matter of fact, Aunt Joyce, Nan and Mum ate at the same table everyday. Once again, my heart goes out to each and everyone of you at this time. May God Bless you and your family, as you mourn, remember and heal. Love Alice ❤️to let me know
