    Mrs. Nosky (Jo) was such a special lady. I was a student of Mr. Nosky, but Jo was a part of our lives as well. I remember her as always having a smile and when talking with her, she made you feel like you were the only person in the room. She was a genuine person who truly cared. I am so happy I was able to visit with her the summer before last at their home. What an amazing lady and I feel blessed to know her.

    Mr. Nosky, I am so very sorry for your loss. Jo was the sweetest, kindest soul. I very much enjoyed (and have missed) waiting on the two of your Friday nights at the sunset. You two were such a loving couple. I never forgot to make sure I got her a to-go box as soon as I delivered her fish so that she could take half of it home. Please know that I am sending much love and prayers your way.
