To Kent and the entire family of Joyce Delana, Clyde and I would like you to know that we had many good times with both your mom and your dad at WarmLake. We took many hikes and traveled around to different spots with them. There isn't hardly a time we go to our cabin that someone including our many grandchildren that someone fails to mention that they miss them not being up there anymore. They were two very special people. Also I can't fail to mention that the coctail hour was always good for many fun times and laughs.Your mom was such a good sport she'd even climb the hill to our cabin. May Our Lord grant you all peace at this difficult time. Sincerely, June & Clyde Gerhard

Joyce was a lovely quiet lady. We enjoyed playing tennis with her and Sumner at the BRSC. I can still hear Sumners laugh. So sorry we lost touch with them these past years. Our thoughts and prayers are for the family at this sad time. Much love to all of you. Ron and Lotus Dibelius
