Joy Anne Tomkinson
(1952 – 2016)

This is my step-mother Joy and her service dog Joel. They were companions and best friends for four years. Joy had lost her legs to complications from Diabetes yet was determined to live her life as independently as possible. Joel was able to help Joy meet that goal.

Joy had a heart attack two weeks ago and never regained consciousness. Surrounded by her loved ones, she passed away peacefully on November 15, 2016.  She will be truly and deeply missed, no doubt by Joel as much as her family and friends.
