Not sure what to say?

Judy, I am so shocked and sad to finally hear of Joy's passing. My memory of her goes way back to her early years (5thgrade). Yes, awkward years. She was so intelligent and full of life. Later, I happened to see a story about her on the front of a magazine. I was quite impressed how much she had accomplished in her young life. Since that time I have been expecting to hear of her further accomplishments. So sad to find her life was cut short. Take care. Her spirit will always be remembered.

to my beautiful sister...know that i'm so sorry this tragedy befell you and i will not let it go without consequences! i love you joy!

Joy, you will be surely missed in this world. It was a pleasure to have met you in Salt Lake City when you were living in Park City. I had no idea we were neighbors in the Bay Area.

With deep prayers, Arlene Samen, Founder One Heart World Wide

So sorry for your loss!

dear joy, may you be with christ and daddy in heaven above...losing him, then shaggy, then's too much to bear and i miss you so much!

joy was my sister! we were so different in so many ways but i loved her so very much and admired her courageous spirit, always doing extreme sports and taking her wonderful son on exotic trips. they even rescued animals. tyler loved animals and is keenly intelligent, maybe even more so than his mother, if that's possible! he's in good hands, being raised by his father and stepmom in joy's house, to keep his life as undisrupted as possible. i miss her so and find it difficult to eat or...


You will be miss
