    My deepest sympathy to all of you. John and Sue Szwed (Julia’s son) I have fond memories of her when we use to visit Grandma’s farm.

    My deepest sympathy to Aunt Josephine’s family.

    I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Josephine’s passing. I am sorry I can not be there to celebrate her life. I have been lucky to have aunts and uncles that I loved. As a child there was much inter action with them, to know them. they were like moms and dads to me. Aunt Josephine was special as was Uncle Eddie. They were like sister and brother to me. Memories of her will always be with me. Aunt Josephine, may God bless and keep you.

    To all the family know that prayers are being sent from Alpena for Josephine. I always think of Kise and Josephine on Halloween week because we would Trick or Treat on their street. I looked forward to checking in each year. It’s a treasured memory of my childhood and every year she will be remembered when trick or treaters come to my door. Much love- Amy
