Sorry everyone for your loved one’s loss.

Never easy The last time I saw Joy was at
Daniel Sjurset’s (my nephew’s) wedding . I sat and said hello
I didn’t know her that well but she was funny that night .

I remember her giving me the pass to the beach very nice of her long ago.

Once again losing loved ones is hardest thing to deal with . Don’t let anyone tell you how long you should grieve .
