Condolences

My deepest sympathies to all the family. I knew Joy through her residing at Burbank Parke. She and I loved dancing in the hallways. She was always very kind and willing to participate including taking walks outdoors. I can visualize her sitting in her chair, taking in the sunshine. I have missed her since she transferred to Orrville. Thank you for sharing her and allowing us to assist her in "growing old gracefully". She was special.
