Josie Stone
Left this world Wednesday 25th March 2009. R.I.P. dear friend.
The world is a much better place because you were here.

by Christina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
 Gone far away into the silent land;
 When you can no more hold me by the hand,
 Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
 Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
 Only remember me; you understand
 It will be late to counsel then or pray.
 Yet if you should forget me for a while
 And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
 A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
 Better by far you should forget and smile
 Than that you should remember and be sad.

  4. The part of Josie I remember most is her voice and that quirky cockney accent which was so endearing.
    I also remember a couple of great little parties at her Angus Street house, with most of the action occurring on the deck at the back.

  5. hi Barb

    I had been trying to find out some news about Josie's death and came across this today. I have wonderful memories of the parties we had at Josie's, there was always a lot of singing, music, laughter and fun.

    I will treasure my memories of both her and Natalie

    love to you

  6. Hi, Mel
    It's been a long time, Mel, and it is good to hear from you. I couldn't see your email on your blog. Please send me a message on Facebook and we can get in touch.
    Josie's parties were legendary, as was she. So sad to lose her.
