    I talked not to long ago with Josh. He talked about my daughter who has Downs and he told me thought of Carolyn often and wish he would have been around her. They were 2nd cousins. My hearts breaks for his mom Vicky. Vicky raised both of her son’s and what a great Christian mother she is.
    The whole family is in my prayers

    I just heard the news about Josh’s passing. I worked with him years ago at Radio Shack and thought a lot of him. He was always warm and friendly and brought a lot of laughter to our team. May he RIP. I’ll be praying for all of you. Blessings to you.

    Continuing to pray for you all. My heart is heavy as I remember the boy who grew up with us and what it sounds like was a blessed adult life he was living with his family. My heart aches for you.
    Much love to you all

    We had a ceremony at the Cemetery on October12,2019 to bury his ashes. It was such a beautiful day. The area he was buried in sits between 2 ponds with fountains. Fresh fish live in the ponds. It’s a peaceful area. I can’t describe how I felt. I felt relieved to finally be putting him to rest, but it felt like a fresh wound too. I pray that the pain in my heart will subside.
