I am so very sorry. I loved him so very much and thought about him often even after all these years. I loved being his 4th grade teacher at Norco. His smile lit up my classroom. I remember how he loved to participate in morning meeting. He was such an inspiration to me. I will never forget him. As a young teacher, he taught me so much that year and so did you, Mrs. Dana. Sending lots of prayers and hugs to you. I am so sorry. See you soon.

Joshua's life brought this family the experience and feeling of true love and dedication. Dana and Jerry were the parents we all dream of being to our kids. He will be missed and always remembered as a ray of light for all that had the honor of knowing him.
