|Let the memory of Joy Pamela be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Joy Pamela Stickland (nee Ostler), 64, born on April 29, 1939 and passed away on February 5, 2012. We will remember her forever.
"The years may come and go but our memories never fade - a warm, loving and happy lady in spite of her unpredictable health - Joy is forever in our hearts and in our minds.
Michael, Sue, Wayne, Lorraine and Max."
"Warm and sunny here despite missing you desperately. Life would be so much better with you here. Yet the days come and go and we learn to live without seeing and hearing you. Memories suffice and sustain the love we have for you. When presented with the trials of difficult day I remember your resilience as well as the love and encouragement you would bestow. That always helps. Usually on a birthday we give you a gift, yet I am thank you for the gift you gave to us. Love always Gary"
"Remembering you on your birthday Joy, we think of you lots and miss our chats and our stays together every year.- you can rest assured in the knowledge that you lived a remarkably fulfilling life whilst you were here with all of your family and friends! Much loved and missed!
Max and Lorraine and family"
"Love you so much
I still think of you very day as I travel
"April will never be the same without that birthday call to Joy. We miss you always and think of you often.
Love, Lorraine, Max and family.
P.S I wish I could tell her my good news, but I'm sending thought waves instead. Sue x"
"Time goes on but does not lessen the wonder of knowing and being loved by you."
"Mums are mums! always there whenever you need them. No longer in body but in spirit. Little reminders scattered here and there in my memory makes me happy for the time we shared and helps scurry sad thoughts of loss into the sunshine of you lasting gift."
"Joy I miss you a lot but I know you are looking over me
As I travel
"Joy you are in my thoughts very day
very thing you had said should happen to me
is on the way"
"Memories of a wonderful friend. Do miss our hats"
"What to say? Think of you everyday and on this day even more."
"Today is the day I would have called Joy to wish her a Happy Birthday - instead I will light a candle and give her my eternal warm wishes. This day will always be about Joy's birthday and the smiles she would bring during any chat. Lest we forget.xx"
"A year, a month a day! measurements of time but not of love. Time may pass but my thankfulness for the time we spent together, the laughter, encouragement and the occasional admonishment will never diminish. Cherish you always."
Amidst this time of happiness with a wedding only weeks away, I often think of how you would have smiled, hearing of our plans for the future. Your warm and bright personality and your knack for always asking the right questions will be remembered and appreciated. We miss you."
"Joy it has been 12 months to the day since I sat by you bedside holding your hand and watched you move towards heaven to be to be with the Lord
"You were my best friend" " My confidante and my great love"
I talk to you very day " Until we meet again"
Aways loved John"
"Missed but definitely not forgotten. We sat by the water in one of your favourite spots and in your honour shared a meal and memories. True a tear or two were shed throughout the day. Yet we try to live as you asked, proud and looking forward. Loved by many but missed most by your family."
"Instead of a phone call today for Joy's birthday, I have this message:
Dear Joy, we remember with gladness the happiness you shared with us on your last days, your smile and laugh engraved on our memories. You were such a trooper with so much grace and positivity - a true inspiration and a wonderful Aunty. May peace be with you. Lots of love, Sue x"
"Joy, remembering you on your birthday
This verse is definitely for you!
I have fought the good fight
I have finished the race
I have kept the faith 11Timothy 4.7"
"To Joy on your birthday, we have missed you so and we will miss you even more over the next few months, the time you would have been up here, hibernating from the Victorian winter! In God's care.
"Joy was such a true friend with a strong Faith in her Lord. I will miss the talks we had about families and my concerns but I know she is safely resting in the arms of the Lord and not struggling any longer with her physical problems.
She is safely home so we can rejoice. Hallelujah"
"How fortunate both Keith and myself are that we have spent time and enjoyed chatting about family and friends, we will miss you Joy, but the angels will be rejoicing."
"Joy's birthday was just one day before mine and now, on April 29 every year from this day, I will light a candle in honour of her life.
Gone but never forgotten."
"This is my tribute to Joy, and the last days I spent with her which I've written with the help of my family,
We invite all of those who knew Joy and loved Joy, and remember her with affection, as we do, to share it with us."
Have a suggestion for us?
