I will always remember your beautiful smile and your encouraging words. Janice Dawson, June 15, 2019 Joy, I'm still mourning but not like an unbeliever. I'm glad you loved the Lord and served Him faithfully, while you had breath. I believe you're in a better place, at the Bosom of the Lord. You were very loyal and dutifully supported us in the work of the Lord at Resurrection Chapel. You labored together with us at those early days. Well, we prayed but the Lord chose to call you home to put an end to pain. After all, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints". Sleep on, beloved, till we meet on Resurrection morning. Emmanuel Olaniran, June 12, 2019 Please accept my condolences. May Almighty God Accept her soul in His bossoms. Praying for her family. Constance Chukwurah, June 11, 2019 Uyor, Rest In Peace, we all miss you. Thanks for being a beautiful soul in our life.

Andrew Flagg, June 8, 2019 I love you, Joy, and I promise to keep your family lifted in prayer. The loving example that you showed them will be within them forever, even if you are not here in the flesh. Rest in peace, my beautiful friend! Until we meet again... Susan Jones, June 6, 2019 “Words, however kind, can’t mend your heartache, but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends.” Godfrey, I am praying for you, your children and Joy’s entire family. Praying that you feel God’s comfort, strength and His peace that surpasses all understanding today and in the days to come, in Jesus Name, Amen.
