Aunt Josephine was a very fine woman/aunt. I am very sad and hurt to hear of her passing. I know she’s in a much better place now and reunited with my dad and the rest of our families. She will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her children and all the grandchildren. Love you guys. John
