Josie was such a lovely lady. I was part of St. Pius Ministry of Compassion. Each Friday Josie would attend our communion service or I would visit with her in her room. We would talk about God, books, share some sweet thoughts and laughs. She was very special to me. My sincerest condolences to the family that I do not know but that she spoke of often. May you always feel her love through the precious memories that you shared. I know I will remember her with love.
