Josh was my brother in law; and he was so kind to me; never spoke bad word of anybody. My last memory I’ll keep dear is going to Chickasaw with him, his girlfriend, my wife(his sister Jamie), his sister Taylor, his niece Lily and nephew Damien. We had a blast out on the lake paddle boating that day!!! Also, other memories him being down for family gathering always cracking jokes, playing cards against humanity, and always playing with the kiddos! He loved his nieces and nephew with all his heart! Josh will be missed so much; still doesn’t feel real, but I’m glad I had opportunity to be apart of his life for the last two years!! FLY HIGH JOSH!!!

I lived next door to Bill and Naomi when you children were little. I love Tennessee football and was excited when he made the team, planning to go see a game and see him play. He is a fine looking young man and we wonder why God took him at such a young age, but that is not for us to question but to know he has better plans for him. Bambi, my heart is sad for you and Naomi and the rest of the family. May God wrap his arms around you, comfort you and be with you. Your friend, Marian Johnson

Josh was such a huge part of our family and always will be and so will all of y’all. He and Will became friends at age 9 . I remember all the sleep overs, jokes, pranks, dinners, Christmas, games, and events we shared together. He was a great kid and great young man. He never said an ugly word or comment about anyone and was always positive, encouraging, and lit up a room. We loved him so much and will miss him greatly. We love all of Josh’s family and friends and sending everyone our prayers and love . We will always be here anytime you need us .

I am so sorry to hear about your tragic loss. Death is truly an enemy. I have been comforted by the words at Isaiah 25:8 which indicate that very soon the Sovereign Lord Jehovah "will swallow up death forever" and He "will wipe away the tears from all faces." I hope that all those who knew and loved Josh are able to find comfort and peace during this difficult time while awaiting the grand fulfillment of these inspired words.
