Guestbook

I just happened to go online of the Breeze Courier and saw the notice of Joy Nation.
My uncle was a longtime member of Davis Memorial Christian Church, and my mother would attend church when she made extended visits to Taylorville.
I have been doing the same. One Sunday after church last year, during my visit, I talked to Joy to express my appreciation of her talent and energy at the church piano. Her passing is truly a surprise and loss. Bless her family. I know she is tickling the ivories in heaven.
