Condolence & Memory Journal

I hope some day the world misses me half as much as it misses you. St. Charles Borromeo Church is getting by but not as well as it did when you were there. We are all so busy with things that aren't important. Technology seems to be running our lives. Thus we have less and less time for GOD.

Say hello to our family in heaven and tell them to put in a good word for us with GOD.

Enjoy your eternal reward. You deserved it.

I am an usher at the 4:00 vigil mass and I enjoyed knowing Josephine; she was always uplifting and happy and willing to help.
I am so sorry for your loss, we will all miss her.
