My heart hurts but i know you are in a beautiful place called heaven. No more sickness or no more pain. Rest our angel. Tell my parents i miss them so much. Tell Tudy i love him.
Hugs Sis...Rest in paradise.

Dear Tia,
Is it possible to mean so many different things to so many different people?

Coming from the concrete jungle those years ago, you gave me kindness and much needed acceptance.

Gus says you showed him the beautiful depths of a spirited, joyful, and happy life.

My boys, Quentin & Cristian, say you showed them to be fearless, be full of strength, and to persevere.

My dear Tia Josie, you are evidence that you mean so many different things to so many different people. My family and I celebrate your life.

We love and miss you so much Aunt Josie. I remember you always calling me "Big Dave" and smiling ear to ear every time I would see you. It was hard for Courtnie and I to see you during your last hours, but we know you are in piece with the Lord. Good bless you Aunt Josie. Love you!!!

Dear Tia,
Thank you for your unconditional LOVE! You loved ALL of your family so much, and you made sure everyone felt blessed, valued, special, supported, approved, appreciated, included, important, and most importantly felt the love of Christ. What an admirable child of God you are. Everyone that knew you, knew you loved Christ Jesus. How AWEsome it was to know you and to have you as our Tia, our very own Angel!

You knew us before we knew each other, so we both have countless memorable moments with you, but our most favorite was your constant motherly tender-touch in our lives. You are definitely a jewel in our crowns. Until we meet again.
We Love you, Nana & Fabian

My Dearest Sister-in-law
Thank you for all the good times and laughter you gave us, all the trips that we took together and all the celebrations that we got to share. I believe that when our Lord created you he actually through the mold away, you are a very special unique and strong woman who had a great impact in life, always there front and center no matter what. I love you so and I have great memories of you that will help me get through this. My HAT off to a one of a kind woman.

My dearest Angel your mission is completed here and deep in my heart I know you will be watching over all of us. Until we meet again.

Love You

My Beautiful Godmother,
You were more than just a Godmother to me you were someone I looked upto. You had a beautiful laugh and a gorgeous smile. You were someone that would ask about the little things that I thought never mattered but they mattered to you. I love you and know you're one of the most beautiful angels dancing in Heaven.
