To Josie’s family, please accept my sympathy in the loss of your beautiful Josie; she’s beautiful inwardly as well as outwardly. I know Josie from Sunday school and have always found her to be a godly woman, a true delight. When we laughed, she laughed with us. When we cried, she did her best to console us with warm hugs. If we who have only known her a short time grieve the loss of her presence, how much more must you, her family, grieve not being able to be with her. I pray you are comforted in the knowledge that Josie is reunited with Ace and the two of them are rejoicing with Jesus for eternity. May our Lord, Jesus Christ, comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead, Louise
