We will miss Ms. Joy. She was such a blessing to each of us. From the first time we met her, we knew she was passionate about the Lord. No doubt shes’s happy now being with her beloved husband, Coy, in Heaven. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. May you all be as strong and caring as Ms. Joy.
With love,
The Alexander Family

We have known Ms. Bowen for many years, as we all attended church together
for several years. She was with us on a tour of the Holy Land and Israel, back in the 70's. Very sweet lady. May the Lord comfort you all.
