Memories of Aunt Josie….. I remember the many visits from her & Uncle Bill, when they came to Rockford. Whether it was the visits at Stan & Lena's, or Little Grandma's Birthday Parties at Linos, she was always full of energy. As a young boy, I remember going to visit Aunt Josie & Uncle Bill in Des Moines with my parents, and seeing their big house. As a kid, I was in intrigued by the whole-house intercom. Funny how the little things get our attention as children.
Her Christmas & Birthday Cards, with the kind thoughts & McDonalds Bucks always touched us. She was never afraid to share those little morsels of advice, and always ‘weighed-in' on some rather intense family discussions. Now, Aunt Josie & Uncle Bill are reunited again, and while we miss them both very much, I look forward to the day, when we'll meet them again. My dearest condolences to the family. You are all in my thoughts & prayers, in this difficult time.
