I just watched you 1988 Olympics performance and it inspired my spirit. You were and still is an inspiration to the world. Rest easy with the Champions.

Wow! It's so amazing to see how people, after all these years, still remember the power, grace, and poise you displayed, on and off the field. I, too, speak of you often to my children, telling them how I'd be glued in front of the television during the Olympics just to see my favorite track and field star do her thing. The Olympics haven't been the same without you! You have been that glimmer of hope for all that have come after you. In my Public Speaking class, I chose you as my "person of interest." You will ALWAYS be our candle in the wind.

You were are will always be my hero. You gave me the love of track and field. Watching you at the Seoul Olympics in 1988 I was amazed by your power your beauty your grace. I can not watch a video of you without crying because I will never have the opportunity to meet my hero. No women ever will break your records you will live forever. Mary is a credit to you. All I have left to say is Mrs Joyner I truly love you and R.I.P beautiful lady

I hold much respect and admiration for you because of your accomplishments and because you displayed your beauty with such grace. I recently saw your daughter on AGT and I cried as I saw how beautiful and humble she was. Al was right there supporting her. I just watched an episode of 227 that you guest starred on and I wanted to acknowledge what a great loss I feel. You are truly missed.

I remember that sad day in sept 1998. I was in home room, during high school. I had just turned on the television and there it was. I remember a class mate capturing a photo of me just then. I still have the photo, and i will post it as soon as i can locate it. Flo joe inspired me to run better while on my high school track team. Thank you flo jo...i really miss you...
