Memories Timeline


  1. Dearest Family,I worked in surgery for many years at OLOL with Joyce. My initials are also JC, so all our friends in surgery would call Joyce JC #1 and I was JC #2. I loved her very much and we had a lot of good times together. I share in your loss.

  2. My deepest sympathy for your loss. May the promises in the Holy Scriptures brings comfort to you. The Bible promises one day soon, God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore -Revelation chapter 21 verses 3,4. We yearn for the day to see our dear loved ones again. Jesus promises, the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out – John chapter 5 verses 28, 29.
