I wish I could pay my respects to Josh and his family in person, but alas, I am unable.

Josh was a great person, he got me through some of my roughest days in school. No one, not even Josh, knew how badly I suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts. I hated school and there were very few people who made it worth going. Josh was one of those people, whenever he was around I knew I was going to be laughing and smiling. He had this look, a mischievous smile when he was about to handout a smart ass comment or remark, and I always knew it was about to be a good one. Josh was a man of few words, so what ever he said was worth a listen. He could joke all day but the words that revealed the human he was, those were few. It's no surprise that he kept this battle to himself and in-between his family. God love you all for being there for him, when I got news of his passing I felt like I had the wind knocked out of me. It's been on my mind since and I been binge watching his YouTube videos.

Josh was truly one of the good ones, my heart is with his family and his wife. I can only imagine how difficult this time is for you all, I only got to witness the light he showed the world, but you all got to see Josh in all his true splendor.

You are in my thoughts and my prayers. Eternal rest, grant unto him, O Lord. Amen .
