"Good morning Mr. Greene, I'm sure you are aware of what's going on with Joy. Yet despite all that has happened, you would be proud of your children, who have rallied around her, refusing to leave her side. Since 11/9, someone from the family has been with her through it all. As for Gwen and I, we have weathered many storms together and we have been blessed to experience more highs than lows. However, as promised, we are in it to win it and above all God has been tremendously good to us. Gone but not forgotten, your presence like mom's is certainly missed."
