Alexandrine Joseph
January 6, 1932 – September 3, 2018

To my family and friends, I leave you with this poem by Sue Walkinshaw:

I feel the warmth upon my face as I enter the land of God’s good grace,
Friends and loved ones gone before, waiting here beyond the door.
With open arms they welcome me, amazement in my eyes they see,
They look so well and at their best, beauty beholds them now they rest.
