    Dear Pietramale Family,
    We are so sorry to hear about Aunt Joyce’s passing. When we would send her cards on holidays, she would always call to tell us thank you and to let us know that she appreciated them. Whenever Dad was sick – she was always there. When he bought pants that were too long, she would tailor them. He loved his sister and she loved him and took wonderful care of him. Her work ethic and drive were second to none. Dad loved to tell the story about her pulling weeds for hours and hours. He wanted to just spray them – and she wanted no part of that! Thank you for sharing her with us over the years. Hugs to all of you. Love, Connie and Matt
