We are very saddened to hear of Joy's passing. We all grew up together, laughed together and always thought of each other. She was my sisters best friend and was considered a member of our family. Our condolences to you.

We are so so sorry for this difficult loss for her family. Joy was one of those forces of nature -- smart, quick to laugh, focused, hard worker. But more than that was her love for her family that gave life to her very name. Now, for all of you, her family, it's getting used to her presence in a different way now -- that place in your hearts where she will always be for you. Love to you, Joy, and gentle hugs to your family.

Kay, Sue, & Sally, I was shocked today to hear of Joy's death. I grew up with all of you at Central Nazarene Church in Flint. The minute I saw this photo I knew who it was. I'm thinking of you during this time.
