I struggle to find the words to express my sorrow. Your family has always had and always will have a special place in my heart and prayers. I will so miss Joy, her smile, laugh, faith, determination, love and care for her family that has left a lasting impression on my heart. Whar an amazing blessing her life and prayers have been to her family and all who knew her. How I will miss her rolling up Ryan, James and Jasmine, for a quick visit, an update, a cake order. Or just a friendly visit with her n CJ. The world feels emptier Joy, but I won't stop praying for your family.
