The following tribute to Joyce Rita Sankar née Joseph was recently submitted for publication. Her funeral Mass was November 17, St Anthony’s Church, Spring Valley, New York. A Mass was subsequently held at the Cascade home of her niece Amina Ghuran who prepared a tribute which was delivered by great nephew Anthony Ghuran. Fr Emmanuel Pierre presided. Sankar was a former Vice-President of the Legion of Mary, St Ann’s RC.
Let your dear mom, grandma, sister, Aunty Joyce be remembered not with tears, but with smiles, for the beauty she has brought into your lives will live forever.
There is very little one can say or do at this time that will bring comfort or solace to you and all the family. It is only natural that you will feel deep pain and sorrow as Joyce was someone who was close to you from the day you opened your eyes.
