I’m gonna miss Josephine ... I have so many fond memories of her . One of my 1 st is drinking scotch with her at her granddaughters house in Las Vegas . My husband (Sam ) had a great time talking about the scotch and drinking it with her as well ... ( July 4th ) she was such a spit fire and cared so much for her family ... I can just hear her voice now and I choke up . I can’t image how hard it is for the rest of the family
... she lived a great life . I will cherish all the times I was able to visit with Josephine .. I think she actually showed me how to play a slot machine in Vegas at one time and said NO DEAR that’s not how you do it !!! She will always be in my heart .
My condolences to my brother in law Jack his wife ( sandy my sister ) and to the rest of the family ...
With love , George & Lorie Fishell
Hilton NY Much love ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
