I always looked forward to seeing Ms. Joy at the House of Three. We had some really good visits over the past year and talked a lot about gardening, cooking, and Shirley, Arkansas. We watched a lot of Wagon Train and
other westerns. She really did love Elvis. I will miss her. Peace be with you all.
