A Smile Last Forever
- [ ] I met my mother’s friend Joy,
- [ ] A smile so kind, caring and loving could last...,
Miles into decades...,
to eternity and forever lasting. I will know and remember a smile that I saw on earth and look up to the heavens and
- [ ] see the same smile and know that Joy’s smile will last forever and remain in our hearts.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Lori, Tim and family. RIP Joy.

Joy has been my best friend for over 60 years. I came to P.S. #34 in the 5th grade and I felt out of place in a strange school with all the kids who had been together since kindergarten. I walked into a classroom and was waiting to talk with the teacher when this brown eyed, pretty blond headed girl approached and said with a smile, "Hi, my name is Joy, what's yours?" I told her my name was Susie. She then told me that she would be glad to take me to my next class. The rest is history! She became my best friend and it never ended. She was the sister I always wanted. I love her and life without her will be like having a puzzle with a piece missing to be complete. Rest in peace my dear friend.

I loved Joy so much. I was deeply saddened by the news of her passing. She will forever hold a special place in my heart and she will be greatly missed.

People often use the expression ‘light up the room’ all the time, but she really did bring light and happiness with her everywhere she went. She had such a beautiful soul and an amazing smile to go with it.

She touched my heart in so many ways and I will be forever grateful to have known her.

Lori and Tim, wishing you and your family peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart.

My heart goes out to you all.

Joy was always so takented, thoughtful, kind and fun to be around. I still remember her cheering for our Manual Redskins. I know she is seeing the face of God. Rest in peace, our dear Wildcat sister.

Dave and I so enjoyed getting to know Joy as neighbors to Chris and Lori for several years. So many good memories shared over those years and beyond. Had the pleasure of having Joy and other family visit us in North Carolina during a trip. She will be greatly missed! Dave and I send our love always but especially during this time time of loss.
