Joy

That's her real name. Joy Elaine Wilson.

But to me she will for ever be Pam-Maw.

Pam-Maw went home to be with the Lord on Sunday.

While I knew this was inevitable it still doesn't ease my hurt.

I can't even begin to describe how amazing she was. Her name says it all. Joy.

From the day Hubs and I started dating she loved me. Loved me as if I had always been in her life as her grand-daughter.

She held a very special place in my heart and still does.

When this journey started a week ago, I prayed for Jesus to hold her close to his side and right now she is sitting as his feet.

I prayed for comfort. She is in the comfort of our Lord.

I prayed for peace. The Lord has granted me peace.

I know she is healed and whole once again. She is rejoicing in heaven.

And while my heart is heavy and tears flow freely, I am rejoicing for her.

I love you Pam-maw and will miss you terribly till we see one another again.

All of these years and I never knew her real name. She was always Pam-Maw to me and my girls!!! Joy...you are right!! There could be no other name for such a sweet person!!! I know you all will miss her so very much, but imagine her now...happy and pain-free with all of her loved ones that went before her!!! I love all of you and have been and will continue to pray for your loss!!!!
