My heart goes out to Joy's family. Familys have ups and downs and I love my dear friend Susan Cramer and all of her family. Joy was always the loudest and and the most rambunctious of her siblings. She used to refer to me and Susie as Spaghetti and Meatball. She was outspoken and rowdy, but she was also very funny. I always felt Joy struggled inside and I hope she has finally found peace. Rest easy, Joy. I look forward to meeting you in better times on the other side of life.

I am so sorry to hear of the death of Joy. The passing away of a loved one is always with much sorrow. May we have faith and confidence in the Bible's promise of a time when pain, sickness and death are a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3, 4). My condolences are with the family at this difficult time.
