Josie was always willing to come to my craft classes at Life Care, she really looked forward to our 'creations'. I'll miss seeing her and her ready smile every Wednesday morning. Thank you for sharing Josie with us. My sincere sympathy to all of you.

I am sorry for your loss. Jay was a wonderful lady and she always made me feel welcome every time I went to her home. I know she made everyone welcome as she was that kind of person. Super Bowl parties were always special at Al and Jays. I know sometimes I arrived a little early to be sure I got my seat. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother as well as a good friend. She continued to bake her famous dessert even when Super Bowl parties were held at other homes. She will be dearly missed by Alice and me.
