Thinking about Josh a lot. So glad we had him in our lives as long as we did - but it should have been longer...

Now our cousin Linda is with him. We'll all meet again one day.

I've only known you for two years, the times we've spend together were great. You are a wonderful and a kind friend. Youve cheered me up through my worst days. It's sadden me to see you go! I wish I was able to see you and say goodbye one last time. I will never forget you my friend.
