Just like her name, Joy was a joy to know because she spread joy to others! She generously shared her gift of encouragement, both in word and deed, by beautifully putting pen to paper (usually in a lovely card) to express kind and heartfelt sentiments. I am thankful to have known her and am grateful that her suffering is over. How very much I will miss her, though!
