My thoughts and prayers are with our family, especially Debbie and Ronnie.  Aunt Josie has touched each of our lives
in one way or the other. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, daughter, and
Aunt.  She had a special place in her heart for all of us.  God has a special place for her now in heaven. May Aunt
Josie be at peace resting in God's hands. Love to all.
