9/17/2002 - 9/2/2019Josie was the fluffy white glue that bonded our new little family together 17 years ago. We are now learning to be a family without her. She was smart, well-mannered, sweet, cuddly, and cute as ever. She was the 4th child. She loved our life in the suburbs of KS, on our little farm in KY, and in our high rise condo in midtown Kansas City! She went everywhere with us; and when she couldn't come, she was pampered with house sitters or visits to Grandmas. She was loved for so long and by so many. We are blessed to have had her for so long. We miss her so, but we know we will see her again!
These beautiful pictures were taken by Tayona Miller at Loved Up Light Photography (KC, MO) the day before we had to say our good-byes. What a gift these are to our family.

I was In love with sweet Josie the moment I met Her! Those eyes just got me. Even on her last day here you could tell in those eyes how loving she was and how wise she was. She may have been the baby but she had such a motherly or grandmotherly energy about her. I could Tell that she knew she was very loved, and she trusted her people very much! It was an honor to capture these photos and to know how precious these would be to you made it that much more meaningful! Thanks for letting me capture the last chapter of her life what a intimate time this was for your family, I’m so glad I could Be apart of it and to witness the love between you all!Tayona Miller - September 8, 2019
