Dear Cari Rosa, Pamela, and other family members, I visited Josie at Aria, Meadowbrooke, and Villa Scalabrini over the past few years as a hospice volunteer. We became good friends...she was a very kind lady with many stories. I regret that I was unable to visit after Easter this year due to health issues. I just called the Villa to see if I could come by, and learned she was no longer "on the roster." I will pray for her and hope she prays for me. I truly regret that I was not present to give my condolences to the extended family! Peace be with you all...Leslie

Goodbye sweet Aunt Josie. You will be missed. So many wonderful memories we have of you, from playing Bunco with you, to you rocking our first born to sleep when no one else could get her to stop crying, & how you called everyone "Baby Dolly". Rest In Peace. The Pumo Family.
