Dear Tim, Marilyn and family,
I just heard of Josh's passing. I am so very sorry for all of you! My heart is broken for you. Josh was such a great man and touched everyone who knew him in such a positive and fun way. Both my boys, Sean and Steve thought the world of him! We are all so much better for having known him. I am just so sorry for you.
I am living in Butte for the time, and will probably by moving to Arizona later this year. If you are ever in the area, I would love to visit with you. My phone number is 406-696-5822. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
Love and Sympathy,
Joan Robins
