Devastated and lost

This is Paul aka Husband and Reuben aka Son.

After a long battle with cancer Joy died on 29th November 2018.  We are so devastated and lost without her.  She was everything to us and things are very hard at the moment.

She is greatly missed.

In time we would like to pick up the reins of her blog and try to continue her excellent work even though we will not be able to match her passion and expertise.IMG_5467

  1. Paul and Reuben, sending love and prayers across the ocean to you. Joy was so expressive in her writing and enthusiastic in her comments, and her love for each of you was evident in every post. She was one of the first to welcome me into this blogging community and will be dearly missed by many.

  2. I can’t really put a “like”. Paul and Reuben, I am deeply shocked and saddened. Joy was… an “E-friend”. We’d comment on travels. I’d see “son” grow taller and taller with time. No words can make up for such a loss. I will miss her.
    And I do think it is a good idea to continue that blog. No rush. Whenever you’re ready.
    My deepest sympathy.

  3. I have only just recently returned to blogging after being away for almost two years and I heard the news about Joy from another mutual friend from the WordPress community. I really enjoyed interacting with Joy, she always had something lovely to say about my posts ❤ I always looked forward to new posts from her too, as they were always so lively and enjoyable to read. Paul and Reuben, I send you many hugs and warm thoughts from Finland. ❤

  4. Paul and Reuben – I am wishing you strength for the hard days and lovely memories to make you smile. I didn’t know Joy well, but I always enjoyed our chats in the comment sections. I am very sorry for your loss.

  5. Dear Paul and Reuben – I’m so, so sorry for your loss. I’ve always enjoyed Joy’s writing, and I can see I’m not the only one of her readers who will miss her lively and informative posts. Best wishes, and my thoughts are with you both ❤

  6. Oh my, I am so sorry. I am just lost for words. I went on a short hiatus and have just started posting again and I was wondering why Joy was quiet. She always liked my posts. I am devastated. Please accept my sincere condolences. I will terribly miss her here for sure. 💔~Belle
