    Hey Joyce. We really miss you. Wish you could come back to us, but since we can't I guess we'll have to settle with seeing you in Heavan some day. You'll probubly being putting on a rock concert, just making Heaven brighter than it already is, or something really awesome like that. We're praying for your family. Love ya, Dakota
