  4. Jerry and Melva Cooper, Jonesboro, Arkansas says

    Hi Ron. This is Melva Cooper. Got your voicemail about Joy. Returned with a text because I don’t hear well on phone. It is wonderful to know she is rejoicing with Gregg and Ernie in heaven. I told Jerry but dementia has taken a toll on him. Our prayers are with you. God is faithful and I pray he gives you peace and comfort in these days. We have many precious memories with you and Joy way back thru our earthly years and someday we will make more memories with the four of us and our loved ones worshipping in heaven around the throne of our wonderful Lord!
