Joy was such a special person. She will be greatly missed. I attended her and her Dad's funeral service which was very sweet. Joy's husband spoke at the funeral and did a wonderful job. I have known Joy all of my life and she was also smiling. I'm glad she is not suffering anymore.

IT IS SO SAD WHEN SUCH A WONDERFUL PERSON LEAVES US AT AN EARLY AGE. I ALWAYS THOUGHT A LOT OF JOY, SHE WAS ALWAYS SO FRIENDLY; AND HAD A SMILE FOR EVERYONE. SHE WILL DEFINITELY BE MISSED BY MANY FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES. SHE CAME FROM SUCH A SPECIAL FAMILY, AND THEY HAVE MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY.

Joy, I remember, was such a beautiful young lady to everyone. I am so sad to read of her passing, but blessed to have known her those few years at East Forsyth. She will be greatly missed.

I am so sorry to learn of Joy's passing. We had many great memories together through our 12 years of school. I spent the night at her home several times, especially our junior and senior years when my mother was so very sick with breast cancer. What a friend she was to me during those days when I was so scared of losing my mother. I will never forget her and I will always miss her!

Joy was one of the best friends I have ever had. I was with her only a few days before her death. She was so courageous and kept a positive spirit until the very end. I think of Joy often and what fun we had as teenagers. Her family felt like my extended family. They still do. I'll always miss Joy. She holds a special place in my heart.
