To those who loved him in friendship and in service.
I remember riding the school bus with you every year dreaming about what we’re going to do when we get older, Cutting up and raising cane. You and Blaire doing what y’all did best arguing just to argue.
I love being around y’all In the hallways the classrooms and growing up.
I’ll always remember you smiling , and willing to help when someone wasn’t.
Last time we talked we were talking about the impala, galaxy500 and the 56 f1 and the bobtail bike you’d built I thought they were awesome.
We were planning a river run down the buffalo in Arkansas around the end of May.
The last time I was there I saw a bald eagle.
So I’m saying good by brother and on the wings of eagles may your spirit soar.

Josh was truly a person that brought light and smiles into any room. He was selfless and cared tremendously for everyone. I am blessed and honored just to have been a friend. The last time I saw him we were able to get the old group together and we decided on me cooking a feast at my home in Southlake. Some of us had not seen each other in many years and he was the one that wanted us together, man it was awesome!! I loved seeing everyone and this was all he wanted. It was a start of a yearly tradition for us. I’ll smile every time I see this picture of the last time I saw you and try to keep it going with the rest of us. Prayers for your family and friends. Goodbye.

Josh is the most caring and polite young man. He spent a lot of time at our house in Southlake. He felt like part of the family.
He is going to be missed by so many.

I met Josh during my freshman year of high school and he was truly a good friend to me and that is hard to find. He was warm and friendly, and made me feel welcome from the first day I met him; he always made me laugh and his laugh was contagious I can still hear it and I hope I always do. I remember when he first went into the army I would write him letters on pink stationary and he said all of his buddies would make jokes about that. He was one of the best friends a girl could ever have and I will never forget all of the good times we and the old gang had together.

Good bye Josh, I know you are in a better place now and I know that the people around you are in a better place now too, because you are with them.
