I was deeply saddened to read of the passing of Josephine. I am forever blessed with having known her and her wonderful son Patrick. They touched my life in so many ways. Patrick was a brother to me and Josie was as caring as any mother could be. Its been over 30 years since Patrick left us and I know that it was always hard on Josie when she saw me. It brought back all the pain, anger and sense of loss she felt with Patricks passing. I knew that it was best for me to limit my contact with her because of this, but she was always in my thoughts. Every time I drove down Old Pecos trail which is often, I couldnt help but wonder how Josie and Richard were doing. I still remember encouraging her to marry Richard back in the day because I could see how much he cared for her. Thank you Richard for being a loving partner and caretaker over the years. She was a pistol. Truly one of a kind. I am hopeful she is with those she loved and finally at peace. Patrick and Josie will forever be remembered as long as I live.

To the Godefrey family,Im so sorry for the loss of your, I would like to share a comforting thought from the bible. Revelation 21:4 Reads And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. For more information on this go to Sincerely yours Charlie.
