So many good memories. You, Jordan, Janice and Philip really made my exchange year in ‘97-‘98 the best experience I could ever wish for. One of the best years in my live. All the warmth from your family was extraordinary. Still difficult to believe your gone. But know that you will never be forgotten ❤️

My dear friend of nearly 37 years , it has taken me several days to try and come up with the right words to express the sadness I feel from your passing. I will forever hold the many wonderful memories of the fun times & laughter we have shared since childhood. Anyone who had the good fortune of crossing paths with you like I did, knew how truly lucky they were to be around such a genuine & caring person. Thank you for growing up beside me and always being a friend no matter what. You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten! RIP Josh and I love you brother.

John and I have known Josh since he was 2 years old. Still can't believe that he is gone at such a young age. We have so many memories of our kids growing up with Josh and Jordan. Vacationing together, pool parties, playing games together. I know that Phillip will take good care of Josh, but you will be greatly missed. We are here for you Janice and Jordan when you need us. RIP Josh. Love You.

He was the first person I spoke openly about my feelings on religion. He is one of the main reasons I left Arkansas. And one of the best weekends of my life was at Josh’s house. But what I will remember most is that every single conversation we had was genuine and meaningful. I can’t say that about anyone else!
