I don’t know where to start.

Josie “Fina” Buceta or as I call her, Auntie Josie was my second mother and 25 Salutation Street was my second home.

There are so many special memories. There is not enough space on this message board to write how much she meant to me.

Here are some of my top picks and most memorable times.

1. Anthony and Joey scaring me from their window with a Halloween mask. I will never forget that mask! Good job Guys!

2. Josie had taken me out of my car seat as a baby and accidentally bumped my head on the car door frame. I immediately started crying. My mother asked Josie what happened. Josie said “ I don’t know, he must me hungry or something.” She told us years later what really happened. Haha!

3. Watching scary movies at her house. There was nothing better than this! Especially her commentary during the Movies. My favorite was a movie called “ when a stranger calls”. During this movie, Josie‘s phone rang more than in the movie and she made so many funny comments about this. If you all know her, you know what I’m talking about.

4. Playing Ouija board with her and trying to get her to talk to ghosts. This was hysterical!!! Cara, Daria and Anthony, you guys know what I’m talking about. Lol!

4. Faking a murder scene in her house and trying to scare her using ketchup as blood and a butcher knife. The best part, is her mother watched all this and did not say a word and continuing to cook. haha!

There are so many more stories, but some I hold very special and near and dear to my heart.

Auntie Josie, you will surely be missed. You were an inspiration and a blessing to all of us. Some of the best times I’ve ever spent in my entire life was at your house with you.

Rest easy, you are in a better place!

I love you!

John

Josie and I were best friends for over 50 years. I was 16 and she was 25. We hit it off instantly !
We lived next door to each other our whole lives. We did everything together...you could say we were like...Lavern and Shirley, Lucy and Ethel and Thelma and Louise....you name it. I will miss her terribly...
Even though I moved away in 2015, I always stayed in touch, on the phone and by mail.
I kept a voice message on my phone of her. 😪 I cry when I play it.
Well Josie we will meet again one day. Rest peacefully in Jesus arms. I love you
Suzanne your friend and sister!
