I'm very sorry to hear of your Mothers passing, she was very kind to Jack and myself. She made us feel at home when home was so far away.

Steve and I have been BLESSED to have known Josephine the last 2 yrs. Josephine was ALWAYS a caring, loving lady to Steve and me! She befriended us when Steve first became a resident at Bayview, she'd keep an eye out for me every day and comfort Steve in his turmoil times. My Bingo partner, our friend who will be greatly missed! I will miss your smiling face in the window each morning watching for me. We LOVE you, Josephine! Thank you for your friendship, sweet lady! ❤❤❤
