Josie was a beautiful woman, an outstanding mother and great friend. She loved her family and friends dearly. She was a hard worker and great provider. She loved music and shared her favorites with friends and family freely. She enjoyed kickboxing and working out. Josie was an extremely generous person always ready to lend a helping hand to one in need. My memories of her were one of love and friendship. I, an american, was her "duh". Lol! Though we never met in person for which I am to blame, she was my soulmate. My babe. Her children Taiti, Louana and Brogan were her life though as was the rest of her family which were all outstanding individuals. She loved and respected her mother and father like no other child I've seen has. I enjoyed the stories she told me about her childhood very much. We shared a song she came to love. It was "Keeper of the Stars" by Tracy Byrd. I have wept bitterly three times as an adult. Once each when my beloved parents passed away. Now a third time when the woman I loved the "mostest" as Josie would have put it. I love you Josie though you are waiting at heavan's gate for your family and I. When I cross to the other side I expect the first words to be "What took you so long you duh". I have one more song for you babe. "My heart will go on". I love you and miss you my babe. See you soon. XOXOXO

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on.

You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on.
