    I was a friend of Josie's in high school. I remember her being a happy-go-lucky kind of gal :-) I am so very sorry the loss of this beautiful woman, so young, so vibrant and full of life. I am saddened she is gone way too soon :-( God bless all of her family and friends as they learn to live life without her presence.

    I knew Josie as "PenaltyBoxBabe" on a sports streaming site where we were both chat moderators. She and I were close because we both had/have long term chronic illnesses. We shared many a joke and enjoyed our time together. I never met her physically, we were just soul sisters. She is missed by many.

    I too only new Josie through the sports site, but we often exchanged the odd private message. Whenever I saw that Penalty Box Babe was online it brought a smile to my face, she was loads of fun & she will be missed by many. R.I.P. PBB, Gurney Halleckxxx
