I called him Joshy I don't know why but that is what I always called him. He was the best little brother anybody could have, we had such a good time growing up. Especially when he was little me and my sister doted on him all the time, we were always dressing him up taking him around the neighborhood in the stroller and everyone would remark what a beautiful baby boy he was. And that he was! I loved him so very much we had so many good times together. I will always remember calling him. Dopper Dib because that was short for Dibbles and when he heard that he would come running around the corner has little chunky self fat legs grinning from ear-to-ear. No matter what he was doing he stopped and came around the corner to see us. I miss you so much Joshy, but I know that I will see you again, and I know that you are better and that you are free free from the demons Satan and the addictions free from everything that has held you back for so long. I know the last 6 months of your life were the best of your life I'm glad you had that experience and that you got things together here on Earth and that your work was done!! I love you so much and miss you so much!!

For the short time I knew Joshua he was full of life, laughter and love. He was a funny guy. He was giver. He always wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time and taken care of. He will be missed and forever remembered in our hearts ❤️

Joshua was a incredible human being that loved life. I was able to spend a lot of time with Joshua the last couple months of his life. He spoke about his family daily, it was obvious to me that his family, kids, mother and father were Incredibly precious to him. Joshua buddy, I miss and live you brother! Until we ride again my friend.

My favorite memory of him was always watching him play my guitar, he would always sing and every time I called him or he called me he would answer with “ahhh hey snook” and we would talk like childish little kids... I loved my dad with my whole heart. He meant everything to me. And always wills he has my heart and apart of me that no one else will have. He did as the best and loving man I have ever met and he will literally be missed so much!
