    I only met Josephine once, but she seemed like such a lovely lady. My sympathy and prayers go out for her and her family.

    Lorraine, I am so sorry about your mom's passing. Upon seeing Jose's picture, I realized that I had been delivering meal-on-wheels to your mom on Thursdays. She was such a delight and always so impeccably dressed. I told her how great she looked and she quickly told me how her daughter took her shopping. Little did I know that her daughter was you. I feel blessed to have known Jose...what a joy! Thank you all for sharing her with me.

    Dear Joannie,
    Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. My Mom is 94 and lives with me. I retired 3 years ago. I hope you and Bob are enjoying life in Florida.
    God Bless you always.
