Dear Josie,
So many happy memories of growing up, family get togethers and Christmases. How overjoyed you were when Tim arrived in your life. We used to babysit for you. We will remember the laughs we shared, your sense of style, your sense of humour and the kindness and thoughtfulness you showed over the years in so many ways with your gifts and words.
A much loved sister and sister-in-law, sorely missed but never forgotten.
Rest in peace lovely lady.
Much love from Lynda & Bill xx

You were always so kind to me and very generous.
Making me pretty dresses when I was
Young, knitting for my children and then my grandchildren. Never forgetting a birthday. I will miss those beautiful hand made cards.
I am so pleased we spoke, laughed and cried together only a few weeks ago.
Your were a beautiful lady inside & out.
How very lucky I was
How blessed I’ve been
You were more than my Aunty
You were also my friend
You will always hold a special place in my heart ❤️
Love Mandy xxxx
