She knows you were all so good to her. I will not be able to attend on June 30 but, my thoughts and prayers are with you all , especially Mary .

My Aunt Josie was a very caring, loving person who cherished family most of all. She opened her home on Cape Cod to friends and family, creating memories for generations. She helped our family in our time of greatest need and her act of selfless generosity will never be forgotten. She showed us what love is.

Our sincere sympathy to you Ann & Mary and all the family on Jo's passing. We have wonderful memories of when she stayed here in Cork with Janice her friend and our visits to her in Cape Cod. May Jo rest in peace

Auntie Jo,
I miss you so much already. I was very lucky to have you in my life. Lucky to share so many wonderful memorable moments with you. Thank you for your sparkling Irish eyes and smile. For dancing with me and my pups, singing Irish tunes, sitting with me in the lovely garden you and Aunt Ann created at Cedardale for all the wildlife, for you warm hugs and infectious laughter. Give Mom and Dad a giant hug and I will see you again one day when we meet in the lofty wonder of...

Our sincere sympathies and condolences to Jos family and friends from Tess and JJ OBrien and family in Youghal, Co. Cork, Ireland, may she rest in peace
