Dear family of Joy i have never met her only through facebook but being a distant cousin we were in touch.i had recently at her request sent a DNA sample for an ancestry company that she had paid for and was waiting to hear from her. I sent her messages but have not heard back and feared something was wrong.So sorry to read this. By best thoughts for your all.
RIP. Daniel Morrissey ( son of Robert E. Morrissey) of NJ.
