  2. To my family,
    I’m lifting prayers for comfort and strength as you lay to rest Katie Joyce. God saw her getting tired so He added another flower to His heavenly bouquet. In the days ahead think about something funny she said or did that made you laugh. God will take care of you and see you through one day at a time.
    I love you.
