Dear Jerry, Our sincerest sympathy to you. We know how much you loved her by the way you sacrificed your time to take good care of her. We only shared a few lovely events with Josephine and you mostly at Minnies and Bobbie's house. We remember the times at Christmas how she enjoyed being with everyone sharing grab bags and playing games. We remembered her at Cynthia's birthday party and how she love to be with the family. Josephine was an inspiration of faith and love and I know the Lord will always shine about her because she showered much love to those who needed it.

Sincerely, Phil and Rose DiGavero

Feenie was the kindest, gentleist sole and she showed it by her action all the time, with people, and animals. She had a great deep faith. There is not doubt she will be beside God. She will be missed.

There are know words that can express the pain and sadness of losing my cousin Feenie, she was not only my cousin but a dear friend to me, we shared a lot together. I will miss our late night talks the way we made each other laugh over something silly one of use would say. We shared the love of animals, Hallmarks, and family. Her desire to help people was part of her being she gave with her heart never expecting any thing in return she will be missed. Her beautiful soul and the love of the Lord defines her best, she will be misted. As I say good bye to you my cousin with sadness, and joy, knowing that the journey your on is taking you home to our Lord. I will miss you always.
Love Minnie

Aunt Feenie, was the most kindest sweetest person ever! She loved like Jesus. Her happiness was so genuine. Anything I ever needed (not just me) if Aunt Feenie could provide she did. She was my God mother but I used to call her "The Godmother" (after The Godfather movie) because a lot of people counted on her. Loved Animals, especially, her dogs. Her love for God and desire to know and Love Jesus was put forth not only in her words but also her and actions. Everyone that knew Aunt Feenie is confident that she is with God and glowing right now.

Feenie, my friend, you listened to my problems, encouraged me in my lowest moments. You shared pictures of your garden. Though we were only online friends, I thank you for being mine. To your family, I mourn with you. Feenie was friend to many, kind and gracious. May God be with you.
