I am Drake Carmical's Mom and him and Josh were great friends growing up. I am having a hard time believing this is real. Drake was either over at Josh's house or Josh was at ours. I remember Drake would say " I am going skazating with Josh". Josh always had a smile on his face and he was so polite. He had a Big Heart. I remember the last time I saw Josh. He was in town to see his Dad. He stopped by the house with Drake. We chatted a little bit about Colorado and what he was up to. I am trying to just focus on the memories. My prayers to Josh's family. May GOD give you strength during this difficult time. RIP Josh, you are home now......... We will always miss and remember you.

Josh was a one of a kind human. He was the most caring and loving individual I ever had the pleasure of knowing. He was always there to listen if you needed him. He was also one of my best friends. The world will never truly be the same without him.
