I really do miss you Joshy Boy. I can’t help but think about all of great times we had in quiz bowl, on bus rides, and in science classes throughout the years. You honestly helped shape me through my awkward years and made me feel welcome in places I wouldn’t have otherwise felt welcome. You went out of your way to make me laugh and never made me feel like I didn’t belong. You were a friend to me even when the only benefit might be a good laugh. Deep down I know you enjoyed the mutual ribbing just the same. Our jokes will stay with me forever. I’m just sorry we gravitated away from one another after graduation and I never got to tell you how much of an impact you had and still have in my life. You were one of the good ones brother. You were the guy who had “it”, the gift to bring light into the room anywhere you went. Your sense of humor won’t be lost in your passing it will live on forever I can promise you that. I’ll keep your family in my thoughts and prayers and hope to see you it the thereafter. Thanks for all the great times.

I remember how my house would brighten up when you and you brother would come over. You really liked being a part of our extended family. I remember how smart you were and how interested you were in everything. And I remember your interest in music and how you wanted to play the guitar and write songs. I’m so sorry your life was cut short. Everyone who knew you will miss you, and you will always be in our thoughts. So sad.

My Dear Friend Lynn and Family, I can\'t even begin to express how very sorry I am that you are experiencing this heartbreaking loss. He had your sweet and happy personality Lynny and it was very clear he was your son. I only worked with Josh for a short time, but in that time his gentle and loving spirit was very endearing and I am so glad that we had the chance to get to know each other a little better. I pray that God will give you comfort Lynn, and ease the pain of this loss so that the joy and happiness of times spent and memories made can bring your heart peace, and allow only the good to remain within your mind and heart until you meet again. My love, thoughts, and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. God Bless you and keep you, and wrap His loving and comforting arms around you until you are together again in heaven. Love and hugs, Kathy Kaleto

I am so truly sorry to hear this sad news. Josh was an adorable little sweetheart of a boy and grew up to have a gentle soul. He could light up the room with his smile and personality. Lynn and Chris, I think of you often and though I cannot imagine what you are going through, know that you are in my thoughts and my prayers. The world is a lesser place without Josh. He will be truly missed and thought of often. I wish you both peace and love during this difficult time and hope the good is remembered and gives way to healing. Love and miss you, Lisa

I cannot imagine the heartache that this has caused losing a son, a brother, a cousin, a friend. I wish you peace, time to grieve, and time to celebrate the happiness he has brought this world. He had a good heart, a laugh I'll never forget, and a great sense of humor. I'll will cherish these memories of him always.

Joshua, from the minute I saw you, you had my heart, and I was your Aunt Lynn. Your smile would melt my heart. As a young boy you showed such care and compassion I knew you would be a wonderful young man who loved and cared for others. When Donald passed away you sang me the song from Rod Stewart have I told you lately that I loved you. You gave me a BIG HUG and you told me not to worry that you would always love me. As friendships change, Life changes, and things happen, I lost touch with your parents. I always kept you and your brother in my heart and prayers. I wondered what you were doing and how life was treating the both of you. I saw you at your Aunt Karen's funeral and saw what a wonderful young man you were. We had wonderful times together vacationing and hanging out. You always sitting on my lap and giving me a hug when I came over to visit.Your life was taken too soon, but I know in my faith that God needed you and your journey on earth is complete. Lynn and Chris, I am so sorry that you have to go through this, you are in my prayers. I wish we would have been able to continue our friendship, but please know, you both are always in my heart and I treasure the friendship and times we were able to be friends. If either of you need me, I am here. I am just a phone call away or just stop bye the house you know where I live. May the Angels greet Joshua in paradise and bring him Into your hands, O Lord, as we humbly entrust Joshua to you. In this life you embraced him with your tender love; deliver him now from every evil and give eternal rest. The earthly Joshua has passed away welcome him to his eternal home, with the loved ones who have went before him. where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.

Josh you always had a way to make people laugh, that’s something special I’ll always hold dear to my heart, you are my youngest son, and my heart is breaking knowing I can’t see or talk to you or listen to a new song that you wrote, you have such a gentle soul son and your spirit lives on with us
