I am terribly saddened by this news and feeling the families grief and praying for you ALL. There is so much to say about Josette and the friendship we shared in Tallahassee that I could wrte a book. I'm in too much shock to say much at this time but I can say that I considered her my best friend here in Florida and we laughed so hard together and spent a great deal of time together whether dusting her dolls or playing cards/games or just sitting there talking. She meant a great deal to me and it was hard for me when she left here. Bob was the best husband and man and I respect him greatly. My heart goes out to you Bob in a big way. I love and loved you both a great deal. I'm at a loss for more words now as I just learned this by trying to look her up but just know I am thinking of all of you whom I met over the years...Leah, Ellis, Dyami, Chellie, Jolee, my heart breaks for you all. She was a one of a kind lady with sparkle and so giving. All my love, Kris
Dearest Chellie, Sorry to hear about your sister Josette, passing away, may God comfort you and your sister family during this most difficult time. Your dearst friend, Joyce Wallace
