This memorial website was created in memory of my mother Joyce Adkins, 77, born on April 10, 1935 and passed away on July 13, 2012. To be out of our fleshly body is to be present with the Lord and we can take comfort in knowing she no longer is sick but is whole again.
Safe In His Arms, Now and Forever
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
Let the Tears Flow
It is human to cry. Crying helps you to heal. Cry with friends, family, and alone. Don’t be surprised when the grief “freight train” runs over you. Just be in the moment, and it will pass. Struggle through your emotions and you will find relief as your reward.
Psalm 30:5 – Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
Matthew 5:4 – Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
"Time does not heal the pain of the loss of a loved one. The Bible tells us: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.” (James 4:8) One of the principal ways to draw close to God is through prayer. Do not underestimate its value!
Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” (John 11:25) The Bible teaches that the dead will live again. While Jesus was on earth, he showed that he is able to resurrect the dead. On one occasion, he resurrected a 12-year-old girl. How did her parents react? They “were beside themselves with great ecstasy.” (Mark 5:42) Under the rule of his Kingdom, the heavenly King Jesus Christ will resurrect untold numbers of people to life here on earth—but under peaceful and righteous conditions. (Acts 24:15; 2 Peter 3:13) Imagine the great ecstasy when the dead come back to life and are reunited with their loved ones. Learn more about Jehovah’s promises by logging on to www.jw.org."
I write this in honor of your life and will continue to do so until we are reunited again. I know you are already aware that I miss you each and everyday for we have our talks often. You were a wonderful mom and you were a mom that walked the walk you talked. You were always there for each and every one of us kids. I am so proud of you mom and I strive to be the kind of strong mother you were with my own 3 kids. Until we meet again mom I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU:)"
"JOYCE! YOU ARE IN OUR MEMORIES, A CHILD OR CHILDREN WILL MOURN, BUT YOU ARE WAITING TO MEET THEM AGAIN WITH A WELCOME COME ON IN THIS IS YOUR HOME. LOVE AND MISSED VERY MUCH."
"I miss you so much !!!!!!"
"This page is going to be dedicated to the most loving caring person I have ever known. And I am so very proud to call her my mother. She was and had such the personality on her that was with her always. My heart has not beat the same since she went home however I am at peace knowing she is in Gods loving arms. I know she is at peace as well. And I know she walks with me time to time for I can feel her and smell her presence. My mom loved her kids with every breath she took and she fought so very hard to stay with us even when she was so sick and fraile. She also was a wonderful wife to my father for 60 years she took such good care of him and like most of us there marriage had some rocky times over the years but when a man and woman finally grow up mentally and spiritually the 2 of them were truly in love And she finally went home after dad told her it was okay and that he would be okay she then took her last breath he said within a couple of minutes. She needed to know he was going to be okay. That was how she was she was always concerned about us her loved ones. And I made her the promise we all would ensure dad was taken care of. My mom was the strongest woman I had ever met and I know I get my strength from her. My mom was beautiful inside as she was outside. She was such a knock out. I am so thankful I got to spend so much time with her the last few years just talking about things and having her smile at me with such proud-ness. I know my mom was so very proud of whom I had become for she told me and to me that is priceless. Her and I had a special connection as mother and daughter and towards the end of her life we got to share some very special mom and daughter moments.."
