So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I worked with Josephine for many years and remember well how she lit up a room whenever she was around. I shall remember her twinkling eyes and joyful laughter. My thoughts are with you.

Sorry to hear of Josephine's passing. She brought light to many a person, not least of whom were her students, who benefitted from her wonderful attitude and beaming personality. A life to be celebrated and imitated. God bless you all as you cherish your memories of her.
