I close my eyes and I can hear Josie's laugh, I envision her beautiful smile and I see her sparkling blue eyes. I close my eyes and remember the look on her face when Ines, Michelle, Jennifer or Jessica walked into a room - it lit up. She was so proud of her girls, their husbands and her grandchildren.
Josie exemplified acts of integrity, compassion, and courage. Her zest for life was inspirational and the world is a better place because she was in it!
Our deepest sympathy to Vince and the Risi family.
Love Always,
Laura, Angie, Valentina and Isabella
