I just heard about your moms passing today at my hair salon. I am devastated!! Your mom was one of the nicest ladies I´ve ever known. We had many beautiful conversations together. Please accept my most sincere condolences for her. May she and your dad enjoy paradise together forever. I will always smile when I think of your parents because I loved both of them so much

My heart goes out to you all! She was such a sweet, hardworking woman. Mr. Joseph was quite the gentleman as well. They were a sweet couple. I enjoyed the Bible discussions that Marilyn and I had. She will be missed!
