  4. she was my 2nd mom, what a gift she had to make you feel so loved! I will miss her so much, Just knowing she is reuniting with her loved ones, takes some of the sadness away. RIP till we meet again. Love Paul, Diane and Jacob Fritchie

  5. Nancy and family
    I am so sorry to hear about Josie. She was a wonderful lady. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

  6. My sympathy to the family. As I watched the video, I saw my mom and dad and Grandma Frieda in a picture at the 14:11 mark. Nancy was there and Josie. My dad Merlin (Smokey) was a Cousin to Josie and of course my Grandma would be Josie’s Aunt. One summer I was out to Lake Ashtabula to visit, many years ago. My folks and I also visited your uncle Marvin who lived in Moscow Idaho on our way home from Spokane. There are so many relatives in our family it is hard to stay in touch. And I have that many on my mom’s side also. Your family has grown I’m sure Josie was blessed in many ways to live this long. Once again my sympathy.

  7. To the Family,
    I want to express how sorry to read about your loss. Losing a family member can be very painful. When I lost my father, I found comfort in what the Bible teaches.
    I fully believe, as the Bible teaches, that God will restore paradisaic conditions to our earth and that he yearns to bring back to life on earth those who have died—including our family members. (Job 14:14, 15; John 5:28, 29)
    We can look forward to the day when we will hold and embrace them again. Every time we hear the word “paradise,” that hope warms our hearts! In the meantime, we can take comfort in the fact that they are in God’s memory.
    I hope the same thoughts may bring your family comfort in dealing with your loss.
