    So sad to lose one of my best friend and someone I truly looked up to. When ever I needed advice Josh was there. When you just wanted someone to talk to on the way home from work a 5 min conversation would turn into an hour. He dedicated his life to his family and mostly to his two beautiful girls. That was his best attribute. He was and will always be a man that I admire and look up to. Love you Josh and will miss u every day.

    We are truly sorry for the loss of Josh. Our loving Creator wants to comfort you with his promise that soon he, “will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4) May this promise bring you comfort and hope.
