Cindy, I don’t know if you remember me from school but I am one of the Stephens twins. I held in alot of anger towards you in school. But life goes on and I am sorry for your loss. What’s in the past is in the past. I just lost my father two months ago. This has changed my life forever. I can’t take back all the pain I caused nor can I change things from long ago. I hope you will except my condolences for your mother.
God bless you and
your family!

Hi Steve,Jeff and Mikey. Remember me from the East Side School? I was in Steve’s class. I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. My memory of your mom is her being our room mother and helping with the class parties. I also remember how proud you boys were when after having all boys she finally had a girl! My prayers and sympathies to the family. Take care.

I was able to know Joy from helping her with our home care services. We had many conversations in our visits, and it was very clear that she was a loving mother and grandmother. She was very proud to show pictures of her family and the quilt that she was working on for Lend A Hand. Ken, you are a wonderful person, and I am sure that Joy loved you til the end. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
