Charles and the whole Boackle family, Tommy and I remember Josephine from the wonderful wedding events for Maria. She was so pleasant to chat with and made us, mere neighbors of yours and Teresa's, feel like family. Your remembrance also was especially touching on Facebook. You're absolutely right: the loss of a mother is HUGE. Our prayers are with you.

Please know that you are in my thoughts. Aunt Jo was always so kind and loving to me. Although she lived a good life, it’s hard to see yet another great influence in my life gone. She was loved. Prayers for all! Love my cousins πŸ’•

Josephine was such a kind, gentle person. She always worked quietly, behind the scenes. Even in difficult times these past few years with health issues, she kept a positive outlook and a strong faith. Thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
