Josephine Montoya, Age :83

Dec 17,1936---Nov 06,2020

Josephine Montoya passed away quietly surrounded by her family.

 She was preceded in death by her husband, Louie P. Montoya. 

 She is survived by her children, Randy Montoya (wife Phyllis); Frances Louise Garcia (husband Patrick); Paul Montoya (wife Teresa), grandchildren (Kristin, Renee, Christopher, Amy and Shane) and great grandchildren (Xavier, Abram, Amiyah, Vivian, Logan and Mason). 

 Death is nothing at all.  It does not count.  I have only slipped away into the next room.  Nothing has happened.  Everything remains exactly as it was.  I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.  Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.  Call me by the old familiar name.  Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.  Put no difference into your tone.  Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.  Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.  Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.  Let my name be ever the household word hat it always was.  Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.  Life means all that it ever meant.  It is the same as it ever was.  What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?  I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.  All is well …
