Joan Brown, Eucharistic Minister from St. Mary Mag

Josephine was a very kind and gentle woman, who always welcomed the opportunity to pray and receive Jesus Christ in Communion. May Jesus welcome her into her Heavenly Home, resting peacefully in the arms of Our Lord forever. I value the time shared with Josephine and her caring family. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of her life. My condolences on your loss.

Man was cerated to leave forever on earth according to Jehovah God's original purpose. But when Adam and Eve sinned we all dies. Again because of Jehovah mearcy he provided Jesus to die fo us and give back life. So God has primised that on the day of judgement he will swallow up death as written in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 and thse in the memorial tumb will come out including our beloved Jesephine, John 5:28 and no man shall say i'm sick, Isaiah 33:24. It is comforting to hear God's true promises


I had the wonderful opportunity to take care of Josephine during the last couple of months. She was a very special lady and will be missed very dearly. My heart goes out to her family, and I am glad she is comfortable and at peace resting in Heaven with the angels.

My heart goes out to the Pennebaker Family. I'm very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. Josephine will most definitely be missed... One thing that helps me to cope with the death of a loved one is God's promise. "God...will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain."-Revelation 21:3,4 Contemporary English Version.
