My condolences to the Rendon family. I would like to say that Mrs Josiie was the best across the street neighbor I could ask for. I am going to miss my talking with her when she would be outside working in her yard. I won’t forget her beautiful smile. I am so sad and going to miss her dearly. I pray that God gives her family comfort during this time of grieving. Truly a great loss. R.I.P. Mrs Josie. Love Cynthia and Ruben.
