e-mail. David Frye

E-Mail Received from Randy Caines:
Joyce Sigmon VPed me last Wed. nite and she's doing okay! Her doctor told
her that her heart is weak. She will have to have a heart pacemaker very
soon. She will also have to stop smoking. She did not smoke after she
woke up from hospital. Her lungs are fine. She's very lucky and it's miracle
like me 4 years ago. Louise mailed her a get well card and $20.
Sincerely yours,

E-Mail Received from Randy Caines:
06/13/07 - She came home today. She is weak but a friend is taking
care of her. We keep praying for her to get better soon.

E-Mail Received from David Frye:
06/10/07 - I have obtained a message on my cell phone while I was at work,
as of today and I was informed by the staff at the nurse station at
Catawba Valley Medical Center that Joyce is now conscious and is recovering
very well. That's the good news about her being in good shape and they had
moved her to Room 525 in which she is still on the ICU 5th floor. I am planning
on seeing her Tuesday and I plan to e-mail you back when I am done visiting
her and you will receive the full information from me, okay? :-) That's all I can
say for right now until you hear from me.
David Frye

Flowers will NOT be accepted at this time while she is in the ICU. Whenever
she is being transferred to another room later on....henceforth; flowers may be
sent to her room.

I am very sorry that has happened to her and I know in my heart how much you

Alas, Joyce needs each of you all to pray for her and have Him to recover her
strength in His hands. Please don't hesitate to do that for her, okay? :-)
