  1. I'm so sorry for your loss Joy. You helped make your mom as happy as you could over this past rough year. My favorite sympathy card has a wonderful message... that the stars in the sky are actually windows down from heaven for your loved ones to see how you are doing. I'm sure your mother is smiling down at you now.

  3. You stood by her to the end, Joy, at times that seemed insurmountable. Both she and you are at a time to rest. You've been a true inspiration to me. Your mom will live on in memory, without the struggle and pain.

    Our thoughts are with you,
    Barb and Miles

  10. Joy,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family in these difficult hours and days. I'm so sorry for your loss. There are never words enough to ease the pain - only to know that you are safe in the arms of Jesus - in these difficult moments, is when He is closest to you and carrying you and your pain. Your mom is at the table feasting with our Heavenly Father! Take care of you, Joy - Love ya! Karalee

  11. Joy, I am so sorry to hear your momma has passed on. I took care of my mother the last year of her life. I know the joy and frustration of daily care, however looking back, I am so happy I did so, I have no regrets. I was also there alone with my dad when he died. I am so blessed. I still talk to my mom and dad every day. I hope you will too.

    Sorry to miss you when we got to cannon beach, but so nice to have a visit from your husband, we had quite a visit. I am sure you are home now and getting rested. I hope to catch up with you when you are better Leslie Beck

  12. Joy, I can only say I am so sorry for your loss. I know you both enjoyed the time that you were able to spend together and how wonderful that you were able to have that time. Your mother is without pain now and maybe knowing that, your pain can be a little less. Love ya bunches

  13. I hope it was peaceful and painless for her, Joy.

    Paulina and I have been through what you're going through, and it's hard -- memories will have you tearing up for months, maybe even years, but hopefully they'll be happy tears, remembering the good times.

    I've got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy
    down in my heart to stay! Your joy will return someday, but first you have to walk through the loss. Just keep one hand in Jesus' and the other in Bob's, and you'll be carried through the toughest stuff. So much love comes your way from so many. Part of your momma's legacy is that she made You so good!!
