Condolences to the Family

Bernie and family, we were so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing.  We could not have asked for nicer neighbors. I remember Joyce bringing cake and welcoming us to the neighborhood. She was such a sweet lady.  Bernie, our prayers are with you.    Jay and Marie Suydam  (and Bob).

Bernie & Family, my deepest sympathy in regards to Joyce’s passing..I trust, Bernie, you remember Walt & Shirley Talbot..I was an Engineer & my wife worked in the Schick cafeterria when Joyce worked for Schick in the early 70’s..If you remember, we went to Kutztown to the Glockenspeel for Dinner where, Shirley & I were on some kind of stupid diet & didn’t eat to enjoy (ha).I cant remember if you & Joyce went to Hawaii on trip in 1973?? I don’t think I will be coming to the Funeral but you & your family are in our prayers..Based on the writing of the obit, I feel certain that I/we will see Joyce in Heaven one day..May God bless you & your family as you persevere until Jesus returns/we are ussured into Heaven.
