No more suffering or bad health.I will rejoice in your mom’s life and pray that God will give you all peace and comfort at this time.

  2. To the family of Josephine Diodosio
    I would like to share with your family that on many occasions Josephine would be over my Aunts Sarah’s with her beautiful smile telling all of us kids how big we were all getting! This was 40 to 45 years ago, unbelievable to think I could remember how nice and that smile I still remember to this day. I guess I don’t have to tell you that she must have been a very special Mom to everyone! Just thought you would like to know she had a effect on everyone she talked to. God Bless your family, Mark Uhernik

  4. I know this is a sad time for all of you. As I sit here in my recliner, I smile when I think of sweet Josephine. She was the ultimate friends friend. I was so lucky to have known her and she will always remain as a “jewel” in my heart.

    Sincerely, Jane Gaster

  5. Ron and Cathy, Sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. It’s wonderful that you had her in your life for so many years. My sincere sympyathy for your loss.

  6. Hi Ronnie, Mike, Sara and Joseph, I am sorry to hear about your Mother. I knew your parents quite well and will always remember them as being really nice people. Ronnie, there is no question that you were one of the best friends I have ever had. I remember the 100s of times we walked home from school at St. Patrick’s and PCH and I’d stop by your house. It was great seeing you at the 50th PCH class reunion this past September. I will keep all of you in my prayers. Take care and God Bless. Ron Melia
