To Joy's family and tp Austin and his family: We aew so sad and sorry about Joy's passing. It is quite a shock, I am sure to all. I saw Joy in April; Shelby, Jillonne and I went to her shop at had our hair cuts. Joy always did a professional job and cracked us up the whole time we were in there! Plus Joy cut my hair when she was at the old Fountain of Style bldg near my "Dad's school". Jeanine will miss her terribly for she connected with Joy so well and so did Jillonne and SHelby.I am cpnstantly praying for these two families in their grief and I am here for them if they need me. I just feel so sad about all thiis. God bless you all especially Joy. Love, Jeanine xoxoxo

I am So Very Sorry! Joy use to be my Beautician at "Smartstyle", & I also went to her when she worked at "Do or Dye" ! She was such a Bubbly & Fun person ! I use to tell her that she could wear her hair any way ,any color & still looked So Cute! In my mind, I can picture her standing there talking to me and doing my hair. She had such a good life ahead of her and taken too soon! My thoughts and Prayers will be with her Family and Friends at this Very Sad time! God will take good care of Joy!
