    So sorry to hear about Josephine. Memories take me back to our school days spent together so many years ago. Seems like yesterday and yet here we are; closer to the end than the beginning. Josephine now begins her next journey.
    Strength to the Nunez and Ortiz families as they experience the stages of grief. May it not take too long to reach peace and understanding over your loss.

    Josie was a beautiful lady, inside and out. She took excellent care of our mother for several years, and I know she took care of her as well as she would have her own mother. She was always smiling and happy when I encountered her, and even in her illness maintained a happy attitude. She continued to stop by to visit my mother once in a while, and my mother and our family appreciated that and enjoyed those visits. She was always a ray of sunshine in my life, and she will always be remembered. I know she is in heaven and no longer having any pain or worries, and I hope to see her there one day!
