Sandy, Roxanne and Emily -
We are so sorry to hear of Josie’s passing, you all are in our thoughts and prayers.
I know we didn’t see Robert and Josie very often but we did enjoy our visits with them! Josie was an amazing cook and she would make so much food when we came to visit. I also remember her storing some of her kitchen things in her dish washer, I always wondered why she didn’t use it to wash dishes. I also loved when they came to Denver, being the little cousin I thought it was so cool to get to hang with Sandy and Roxanne.
Our hearts hurt for you all and we hope the happy memories of her past will help you through this difficult time.
Love from Colorado - Michele and family
