  1. To the family and friends of Josephine Williams, I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to her family. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. Experiencing the lost of a beloved family is one of the hardest thing that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. Take comfort in knowing that God never intent for us to deal with sickness or death. But have assurance in this wonderful promise that God holds out to us. He promise us that very soon he is going to reunite us back with all those loved ones we have lost. (John 5:28,29) Until that time, cherish all the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. Josephine. These precious memories will console the family in the day's ahead.
