Joy was such an encourager to me in my mission work at the Spanish Health Ministry. I grew up knowing Joy and her sisters. Then God brought us back together at Tel Hai when I did a program in 2017. Our oneness in Christ unified us after so many years! Now she sees her Savior face to face.

Jackie, Bob and family, So sorry to hear about Joy. She was a great friend to many. Your children were so lucky to have Benny & Joy in their lives. She always kept me updated on the kids and what they were doing. We may not have been in touch much after we moved away but I thought of her often. We had great times as wives of Mason's and the functions we attended together. We also spent many nights visiting while the guys were busy. I once broke a kitchen light trying to pop a bottle of wine, fun times!
