I am so saddened that I cannot be with all of Josie’s friends and family to celebrate her life. I met Josie in 1983 and always felt so fortunate to work with such a joyful and intelligent nurse. I believe that all of us who first knew Josie because we worked with her, know that part of who we are as nurses was shaped by Josie. What a gift she gave us. She also kept us all connected. The best invitation was the one from Josie inviting us to join her and so many of our friends. There was no separation between Josie the nurse and Josie the friend. She was joyful, funny, sensitive, generous, kind and more, whether at work or at play. Josie will never be forgotten by those of us fortunate to have known her. I know we will all see that smile and hear that laughter always. I will never drink coffee without thinking of her.
Rest in peace beautiful friend,
