Please know we are praying for you all during this time. I last saw Joy when she came to visitation for Mom this past January at FBC, YC. She was so kind and comforting to us, as she always was. My heart is heavy for your loss, but there's that peace, too, knowing she is with Bro. Yates in God's home.

Mrs Yates always had a smile and always special and made everyone special she knew...she sure was special to me... In my day as a photographer...getting everyone together to be photographed at weddings...she will be missed by all the lives she touched...

She took my family to lunch after church one Sunday and we had the best time! Payne and Mary Paige where home and I am so glad they got to visit with her. I have many memories of Mrs. Yates growing up. My favorite is when she was directing our wedding rehearsal and she told my Dad the it was not his show so to be quiet!!!! We loved her dearly and she will always be a hero and shinning star to me and my family!!

I'm praying for all of the Yates extended family during this difficult time. Ms Yates was so very special to everyone. She really was an angel here on earth to so many. I know she is smiling that beautiful smile as she is reunited with loved ones that have gone on before her. She made her mark on Yazoo City and she will be missed by her church family and all of her friends that loved her dearly.
