Aunt Josie, I have such beautiful memories of you. I was just talking to my oldest daughter about you and telling her how I wish she could have met you and talked with you and known you like I did when I was younger. You were so beautiful and your laughter was like music to me . You were so real to me and I feel so blessed to have experienced those moments with you. I remember you standing at the church door. You had come from a hospital your self and I could tell you were weak. You could see I was heartbroken and you said, Jewell,and pulled me into your arms and held me close in your arms. It was a real hug and I felt unconditional love. You will never know how much I needed that hug. I wish love and comfort for all your loved ones.

My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of my Great Aunt Josephine. She was my grandmother's (Eva Mae Green Moye) younger sister. While I didn't know her well, I definitely see our family connections through the beautiful memories captured in the video. May God's comforting peace surround you in the coming days and may we always remember the importance of family. Love to you all. ♥

Jose I have to keep telling myself you are happy and at peace now . You are with Joey and Briana and y'all are walking in the clouds in heaven together and y'all are together and happy. I miss you already though, I think bk. and I can remember for about 20 years we disagreed on any and everything, and yet the past year + we actually agreed on just about everything. It's crazy how life can turn out for us all. But I know now you have no more worries, no more nothing but peace and happiness with you now. And I never thought I'd see the day that I had to lose the man I had my beautiful baby girl Briana with and then lose her too and now you.... But I know in my heart and soul y'all got called home for a reason and that reason is nothing but good. For God does nothing but good! I miss y'all all so much! But I will say this to you , I will keep every promise I made you alright. You'll see! We made some memories that for sure, lol. And I wouldn't trade none of them for anything. It was all meant to be , just as now is meant to be also... May you now rest in peace Jose. I love you!
