Please accept our sympathy. I have so many wonderful memories of Joy. I have thought about her many times during recent years. When I worked for Garnet during her last years I would bring Garnet over to Joy's house and we would visit. Such wonderful memories to always treasure. God's blessings to all of you.

So many wonderful memories of this lady as I was growing up! Joy was like my second Mother to me! We had neighborhood campfires and she was always helping my Mother do something! I loved her and our JC neighborhood growing up with so many wonderful people.
