Less than three weeks ago, Joy was in southern California planning her mother’s 90th birthday celebration with sisters Jody and Jeri. This past Tuesday, she returned, this time to her mother’s deathbed. This afternoon Virginia passed away peacefully. She is survived by her eight children, many grand and great-grandchildren.

The only thing greater

than a mother’s

undying love

is the combined love

returned to her

by those she loves,

laboring in their

song of gratitude.
