Paula, Peggy, and family, please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers! Will always remember the good times we had sitting at your Mom's kitchen table, drinking a cup of coffee, and reminiscing together. Josie is at peace now, no longer in pain, and is with The Lord Jesus Christ. We can look forward to the day that we will see her again, in Heaven. "What a day that will be!" Love, John (Collingwood)
