We are so saddened to hear this. We met Josh at BRCC around 2004. In 2003, he and Cedric both received their GED from the same school. Josh remembered Cedric from graduation night and they hit it off from there. We would all hang out at the Student Center together and have fun. He was such a great people person, fun to be around and always positive. He will be truly missed. We send our condolences to all his family and friends.
