To Joy's Family, I was so sorry to hear that Joy passed away. You are all in my thoughts, and I wish you the comfort of lovely memories to soften your grief. Joy was a part of our International Admissions Team years ago, and we enjoyed working with her very much. She was a wonderful part of our team - funny, dedicated and interested in all thing international. We all shared an interest in travel (as you can imagine), and we always enjoyed hearing about Joy's trips. My condolences, Jeanie Bell, International Admissions Team Office of Admissions University of Colorado Boulder
To Dawn and rest of family. I was so sorry to see in the paper of Joy's passing. I enjoyed her friendship, quick wit and fun personality. It was a pleasure to work with her in real estate both as a Realtor and friend. Happy to have helped her sell the house in Blue Heron and visited her at Balfour. Hugs to the whole family at this tough time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Jamie
