josephine!

clare just sent this picture of mom,
from the 4th grade.

does anyone see "donna" in that picture?



click on the collage for an enlargement of one of jo's poems,
entitled "the ideal companion."

The Ideal companion
by josephine t. femino

He is greater than great, this friend of mine, and I wouldn't trade him for the world.
He is the comforter of sorrows, and the joy of joys.
Helpfulness is his chief characteristic.
Innocence is written all over his face, along with a pious, winning smile.

Not only is he a friend of mine, but he is everyone's companion.
Very few people can do without him.

Greatness doesn't affect his mild humbleness.  
This is one of the reasons he is loved so well. 
The name alone of this man is respected, and it is easy to see why, when you know that this superior being is "The Lord." 

As far as opinions go, i believe there can't ever be any companion better and safer, to keep whenever we need him.

mom wrote "companion" in 1947,
when she was 15.









above: donna
