    I knew Joy since we were in grade school. She indeed was one of the sweetest girls I ever met. I would give her hair permanents in high school. Her aunt thought I did that better than any hair dresser. I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone. She was most certainly one of a kind. So sorry to hear of her passing.

    Sorry for your loss praying for you and your family.

  5. So sorry for what everyone is going through, thoughts and prayers for the family. I feel honored to have been her Hospice nurse and got to see her weekly. I looked forward to seeing her weekly and kept wondering how she keeps her face so smooth without any wrinkles- she never did tell me her secret, maybe genetics. I will miss her sweet smiles and kindness. Thank you again for allowing me to help take care of her.
