Even though I didn't know Josh very long it was a genuine pleasure to get to know him, and his family, for what had to be one of the happiest times of his life. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Josh touched many hearts. I pray that you find comfort in all the memories and kind words. "Sadly missed along life's way, quietly remembered every day... No longer in our life to share, but in our hearts, you're always there."

There are no words that can heal a wound like this, but all of us who are mourning with you hope that we can help to ease the hurt. Josh had a special talent for making whoever he was smiling at feel like they were his best friend in the world. Even for those of us who hadn't seen him in so long, the memories of our time spent with him will always be special ones. He helped us all to make memories that we'll cherish always. It's hard to imagine a world without him in it, but I have to believe he would want us to hold onto those memories of laughter and probably even mischief. I'm wishing everyone the strength, love, and friendship to make it through this loss.
