  1. It is very difficult today when I got the news from my coworker. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathies for the loss of such a wonderful mom. I miss her dearly and I will pray the love of God enfolds everyone in the families during this difficult time. Miss you MOM and love you so much

  2. Dear Sutton Family:
    I was so sad to hear of the passing of my Aunt Joyce. I have so many childhood memories of this very special lady that words seem too shallow to convey my feelings of loss. She was a great Aunt and person. She will live on through all the wonderful memories she has planted in me and my family. May her smile light up the heavens and her laugh stay in our hearts forever.

  3. Dear Suttons,

    Sorry to hear about Joyce. We sure did have some good times, and I’ll remember them forever. I’m hoping you guys are alright and am sending a wish of strength through this.

    John and family-Dana, Zoe and Shane
