Dear Uncle Josh,
It’s Anabella, did Aunt Kim mention that I’m 9yrs old now.? I still remember those times when you would play with me and when my mom said “no more cookies” you’d always sneak me some more😁. I’m thankful that I met you and part of my happiness is because of you. When I was sad you made me happy because that’s you. We will all miss you. I love you Uncle Josh💖
Love,
Anabella

Dear Josh,
I’m writing you this letter as an expression of my grief. I thought I was incapable of crying anymore but I was proven wrong.
I was sitting on my couch drawing in my black sketch book, the one I showed you and you told me you really liked my drawings and I should sell them. You made me feel like an artist that day, like a female version of Michael Angelo. That’s what you do Josh, you bring joy and happiness to people. I can’t count how many lives you touched by just being you, always willing to help.
I’m sad and expressing this hurts my feelings because I can’t picture myself not being able to share little things like my art work with. Thank you for being a good respectable friend and family member to me. Your such a positive light and I won’t forget you. Mount up with wings like eagles because I’m going to see you in heaven. I love you Josh.
Smile always
Kristina ~

I will never forget you coming to help me when I broke down in the middle of the road.. Come to find out I broke down because the car needed gas... I guess the gas gauge wasn't working... We laughed and laughed and joked about it all the time. Thanks for the kindness you spread as you went and continued to pass along. Also, for your sweet country voice telling me you and Melanie loved me.. God has you now and you will never be in pain or suffer from worldly things ever because you now live with Jesus for eternity... I am so glad you have your life to the lord.. Rest easy Josh..
