Through the amazing generosity and hospitality of our sister-in-law, Ginny Joyce, we have had the honor and pleasure of sharing Thanksgiving with Carol and Jack and their wonderful family for many years. Being with them is always a joy. They so clearly loved one another and their fabulous daughters, and they contributed to everything the family and their community did, with great power and no horn-blowing whatsoever. They are and were people of faith, and their personal strengths spoke volumes. Wherever there was a just cause, they were there, quietly but resolutely standing for what is right. We feel privileged to be their family, and our thoughts and prayers are with them always. Carol and Jack, you rock!
