Words can not express my sincere sadness over your loss of Josh. From reading the stories of Josh it is clear that he was a remarkable young man. The adoption was an event that brought you together but love made you a family. Josh will forever reside in your hearts. You are in my thought and in my prayers that you find strength.

Titus family, I was deeply saddened when I saw the post about Josh. Josh was a huge light in this world to everyone he came in contact with. I can remember at 5 years old playing games with Nate and Josh as Jake your dog would run around. or as Nate, Josh and Andy would help me with my pinewood derby car for Boy scouts. he will be deeply missed by everyone you will be in my prayers and my thoughts and forever in my heart.

I send my deepest condolences on the loss of your dear son. From reading his obituary and viewing his photo gallery, it became clear to me how truly special Josh was and how he left his mark on this earth. I could also sense great love and support all around him, from babyhood through adulthood. Losing a child is unimaginable, no matter at what age. You are blessed with a strong, loving family to lean on. I pray God grants you strength to bear this saddest of journeys.
