Our Joy is now in Heaven
Our 30 year old daughter Joy took her life October 7, 2012. She left her teaching job in August and came home to us with acid reflux. She looked very troubled so we sought pastors, doctors, counselors, and a psychiatrist. As you know all this take time with appointments. She showed symptoms of extreme anxiety. We thought working with special ed students was too much for her. However, not one of the 4 MD's saw depression. We were really troubled with her anxiety and lack of sleep. We were broken hearted each day trying to seek someone to help her. The day after visiting her psychiatrist, she took her life. The night before she told me what a great dad I was. We loved sharing bible verses, shooting and jeeping. She was my hero and the perfect daughter. She had a great love for others including her church and her job. What a great loss to this world. I miss you Joy and I will see you in heaven.
