    To the Bishop family my condolences on the loss of your loved one. I worked with Josephine at Codman Square health Center as a part-time operator during the evening Josephine was such a beautiful person. She had the most sweetest and softest voice she was like an aunt to me. She was like an aunt to me. I remember when she invited me over to her house and a group of coworkers her hospitality was so warming. I am truly going to miss her unfortunately because the services is being held in Virginia, Virginia. I won’t be able to attend, but I would definitely be there in spirit in the celebration of her..
    I love you, Josephine, and I would never forget you

    To the family of my dear friend Josie (she always let me call her that); I offer my sincerest condolences. We’ve been friends since childhood. I will cherish all the memories from making mud pies at Wellington Court in Boston, meeting up in St. Thomas, driving over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, shoe shopping, and singing in the choir. I remember driving with her to VA once. She was behind the wheel. I look over and Josie is crying. I say “What’s wrong?” She says “I hate driving over this bridge.” I say “Well if I knew you were crazy I wouldn’t have come!” We laughed and laughed. I will truly miss her and pray peace and comfort to her daughter and family.

    Love Irene

    My condolences to the Bishop family. I am still in shock to hear of the passing of your mom. I work with your mom at Codman Square Health Center in Boston MA for many years and boy! what a pleasure it was having her in the office. When she said she was moving to Virginia to be with her daughter it was the saddest day in the office.
    However, we all got together at her home the Saturday before she left to say our goodbyes and best wishes.
    Today is a sad for us but a blessed day for the angels in heaven they have gained a wonderful soul.
    I know she will be announcing her arrival in sound what a voice she had.
    May the Lord give you comfort during this time of pain and grief.
    Stay encouraged! Cherish the good times. Blessings!
