It is our good fortune when friends leave us with indelible memories and lifelong lessons. Josie was one such friend. For decades, she met adversity with bravery and a commitment to make the most of each day. She was a wild woman that not even the wind would dare to tame. Her exuberant love of life made her a force that continually defied the odds stacked against her. This painting is a small token of my appreciation for the years that she shared my path. You are dearly missed, Josie.
