I knew Joy as a friend and as a fellow traveler on the walk of faith. She supported me in times of difficulty and sorrow and she shared in celebrating the good times. She encouraged me when I struggled and admonished me when I needed it like good friends do. She personified for me words like compassion, endurance and courage. Our world is a better place and we are better people for her having walked among us. I will miss her. We all will miss her. Barbara and I are in prayer for the Walker and Bromley families.
