Among my friends,
“Josie George was always at the centre of everything enjoyable, causing trouble, making shows, and sharing adventures. I don’t have all the words to express how much light and love she brought into my life. Protector of the clan, it’s difficult to picture the world without Josie, who always made an entrance and filled the space as no one else could. I’m sending my love to her family and all my old and new friends.
“Josie will always be remembered for enhancing our lives with her positive energy, warmth, compassion, genuineness, vitality, support, brilliance, spontaneity, and limitless enthusiasm. It was an enormous honour to call Josie a friend since she brought sunshine into every space she entered.
One of the worst things anyone can go through in life is losing a loved one. Any journey must terminate somewhere. Sadly, the person’s time on earth has ended with their death.
We send our prayers, thoughts, and wishes for eternal peace to her family, friends, and loved ones. May she rest in peace.
