Joy was the special lady that helped raise our kids, Luke and Katy, until they were ready for pre-school. She was patient and kind and the most selfless, God-loving woman that we have ever known and could have ever hoped to be part of our extended family. It was heart-breaking to lose her then and now. Emerald she, like you, was a gem. Praying that you find comfort during this time of loss. I have so many fond memories. Luke is now a freshman in college in South Carolina and Katy a junior in high school—they are better people because of Joy.  All our love,  Cindy, Mike, Luke and Katy Majick
