Ann, Joseph and Ruth, you have joined a group that no one ever wishes to join, the group of bereaved parents and grandparents. You will have some bad days ahead and some worse days. Eventually, you will be able to talk about your beloved son and grandson, Joshua without crying. You will be able to smile and laugh again. It will take time. Be patient with yourselves and support each other. You will never "get over" the loss of your son and grandson but you will learn to live in the new reality that is a world without Joshua. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have known Josh since he was nine years old and I have known the entire family since then as well. He was like a brother to me and he looked at me like a sister. He’s too young to be gone and I just reconnected with him, only for him to go and all I can think about is him being on and his daughter. I’m going to miss you Josh and I’m here for the entire family. Anna, Katie. and know that in your hearts so don’t hesitate to reach out if you need me or just want to talk. I love you all. This is a tragedy.

My big brother! I hate to see the day some shit like this would happen to you. We have talked about what we would do if this ever happens to either of us. And I will provide your daughter and your younger siblings any assistance that they need. Whether it’s an ear to talk to or a bday present from uncle dean. We live and learn from our mistakes, just watch over me from now on (I know there are a lot of people your obligated to but I understand). You’ve had my back from day one, saved my ass multiple times, u my A1 dawg. One of the strongest people I’ve ever known and tough as a rock. I looked up to you and I never really told you. I can’t be there because of the army and I know you would understand. I love you big bro! Big hug like we do every time we go our separate ways! But you’ll always be here with me!

I met Josh and his sister Anna through my friend Ann. I've not seen him in years but what I remember about Josh is his sweet nature and kind heart. Rest in Peace with the Angels in Heaven Josh.

I never in a thousand years thought I would be sitting here trying to find the words to Express how I feel because god called u home lil brother. We've been brothers for as long as I can remember. No matter how much we conflict, we would always make up and it would make our bond a lil more stronger. I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for u. It has been a privilege and an honor to be able to call u my brother. I thank god for every day we've known each other and from this day forth I promise to keep ur memory alive lil bro. U were my go to guy if I ever had any problems and u were there for me with no questions, no explanation needed just there, no matter what and vice versa. Me and Amy, Tbone, Shaun and Jayden will be here for Tati whenever and if ever she needs us. U got my word. Rest in Paradise lil brother. Til God calls me home... I will always love u bro. See u when I get there. SPC 4-life
