I posted a picture of me and my Aunt Joy. She was here visiting this summer (our winter) for 5 weeks. I really had a lot of fun with her. In fact, I cried buckets when she had to go back to the States. Here is a little poem I wrote about my special Aunt Joy Joy. Oh, by the way for some reason we all refer to her as ‘Joy Joy’ and at first my sister Tori called her ‘Joe Joey’. It made me laugh.
My Aunt Joy Joy
My Aunt Joy Joy always played Phase Ten with me.
My Aunt Joy Joy always sang with me (Highschool musical songs).
My Aunt Joy Joy always watched movies with me.
But then one day she had to leave South Africa.
I know she is a treasure in my heart and will never leave.
I love my Aunt Joy Joy!

This is a picture of the Joy shrine that hangs next to Skyler’s bed. It is the hand written version of the poem noted above and a picture of Joy when she was in high school.
So a visit from you too might warrant a special poem and place on Skyler's wall.
