Sometimes you meet a person and you just click- you’re just comfortable with them, like you’ve known them your whole life, and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything. Jo was my someone. I’ve only had the joy of meeting and caring for Josephine for a short period but one would never guess due to the nature of our relationship. She listened to me and she taught me a lot. She shared stories and experiences and gave good advice and she was rather frank Josephine certainly didn’t sugarcoat anything and I especially loved that. The more time we spent and the more I knew her I was able to be myself around her because with Josephine there was no judgment. I was happy in a very long time to go to work everyday because the joy of seeing her and having our little chit chats was always enough to put me and my mind at ease. Our thing was bananas- a more never passed where I was not greeted by a banana that she saved for me luckily I had no issues with bananas because it was Jo’s morning treat for me. She was more that a client and more of a grandmother, mother and friend and I will miss my dear friend dearly.

Some of the best memories I’ve had were of Uncle Larry and Aunt Josie. Always so full of life and always smiling. I remember moving to sunrise when they lived right off sunset strip, and they always made it feel like home.
Love you so much. My the lord reunite the two of you in everlasting love. Love you !!!!

Much sadness to hear about the passing of Josephine. I met her many years ago through Jim and Dorothea. Good solid woman with high moral compass and a love for family.. her traditional Italian upbringing was a breath of fresh to a fast changing world and she brought her values and true heart and spirit to everyone she encountered. She lived her life for her children and grandchildren..
Go with God and rest easy knowing you loved all around you and were greatly loved by whom ever you encountered..

Grandma, you were the best friend I ever had. I will forever hold all our memories to so close to my heart. From Sunday dinners, sleepovers, baking cookies, drinking too much wine, you driving me crazy, grocery shopping ( your favorite). I will think of you in everything I do. You were always full of life & you brought so much joy to anyone you crossed paths with. You were my partner in crime & truly an angel on earth. I feel so grateful for all the special moments we shared together. You will always have a piece of my heart & I know I’ll always have a piece of yours. Thank you for shaping me into who I am today. This world just simply won’t be the same without you. I’ll love you & miss you forever. 💜
