My heart is with all of the family. Aunt Josephine is my favorite Aunt. I remember once when she let her hair grow so long that it touched her ankles and it was beautiful. Uncle Gene used to tell me and mama and daddy that I laughed just like my Aunt Josephine, and I still do. Oh how it made me feel to know that I was like my Aunt Josephine, it was and still is the greatest feeling. I will miss her dearly as I know everyone will. I look to Heaven and know that God has another beautiful Angel with Him now and I know that we will all meet again someday. I love you all and wish i could be there, you all are in my prayers.
Sharon, Wyatt, Ranger
