To Walter and family. So sorry to hear of Joy's death. You certainly had a wonderful wife, mum and friend. Sorry I won't be able to be at her farewell. I have lovely memories of many years of good times at Splash Palace with Joy who was a friend to all.

I feel so privileged to say that Joy was my friend. We had great times together at the pool and having coffee. We talked , we laughed and we enjoyed each other’s company. We were always talking about our families and the love and delight that they brought to our lives.
JOY means - great happiness, someone greatly valued or appreciated and to be glad and rejoice - well that name is truly fitting for you, my friend ! You certainly brought JOY to my life and I will miss you terribly.
Rest well and in peace Joy. And as you would always say “ Bless you”
Arohanui Walter & whanau ❤️ May you surrounded by love and may Joy’s spirit and values live on in each of you xxxxx
