My heart goes out to Josh and his family. Words cannot replace the loss of a child. At a time of such great pain and sorrow remember the community grieves with you. Think of the little things he would do or say keep them in your heart and know that he is with the family members that have gone before waiting to see you again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Susie and HL Case
