I loved your mother when I would come to visit at various times. She was always kind to me. I have wonderful memories of Paul and Helen. May God grant you help during this time.

Paul and family (including Joyce and sisters!) – So sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She was a wonderful lady who was always welcoming to anyone who passed through her doors! So many wonderful memories of her and your dad over the years I spent in McMechan with Joyce! Take comfort in the love of your family!
