I will never forget the time Joshua came to Oklahoma for the Welding class that Brandon helped teach. Besides repeating the funny moment with the 4wheeler 'taking a bath in the pond' story, I remember the evening where he came to our house to help carve pumpkins with Tucker and Kamton. He was always willing to lend a hand and help out out in anything that came up. We had so much fun, the boys still talk about it. Distance made it hard for us to visit as often as we would have liked to but I will definitely miss his silly jokes and shy smiles. RIP and fly high sweet Joshua. We love you!

Joshua and I were first cousins. Our moms were pregnant with us at the same time but he was born one week before me...which is something he would not let us forget. That one week made him so much older than me, ha ha! We saw each other more often as kids than we did as adults. I remember Joshua always shared his toys with me and my sister, whether it be video games or the rope swing in the backyard. He introduced us to Donkey Kong and swam with us -- we didn't have a pool so it was always the thing to do at his house. I love you Joshua but I know you are in a much better place and we will be with you soon. We will take care of your mama in the meantime.

I can remember a trip to Georgia years ago when I was younger. Joshua was real little and he got ahold of the water hose outside and started spraying one of the adults. I can remember them yelling for him to put it down and chasing him. Loved the laugh! Something I have never been able to forget! Joshua your going to be greatly missed. You have impacted so many people along your way and no one will ever be able to replace you. I love you always and forever!

From the time Joshua could walk he always wanted to help. Whether it was dragging limbs across the yard or using a vaccum. Joshua always wanted to be some sort of help. He was a hard worker, always knew he would do something outdoorsy. Bobby and I always knew we could rely on Joshua to help around the house or Bobby's work. He loved helping others. Joshua that was one trait you had down pat.I admired Joshua for his caring spirit he would give you his only shirt off his back if it meant to help someone of need. Gonna miss you buddy,loved hearing you call me TonTon You will be missed buddy but never forgotten. We loved you so much. RIP and do what you've always done best,in Heaven! Fly high

Josh and I go way back. I remember playing when we were kids on our rope swings and playing match box cars in the sand. I used to make him be the Ken when I would play Barbies. He was my first best friend. You couldnt tell us anything. We would go right up to our fort (tree house) and step into our imaginary home with homeade curtains and a bucket to pull up our food and things we needed. I remember getting off the school bus and making ramon noodles then jumping on the trampoline for hours. We were always together. Always playing outside and exploring over fences and deep in the woods creating our own little worlds. He will always be remembered as my most trusted childhood friend and I will truly miss him.

We have known Nadine and Joshua since Parkway Baptist Church, they were at our wedding more than 22 years ago. I watched him grow to be quite a good young man. Many times Nadine and I prayed over him. I know that God honored our prayers and that Joshua rests in His Arms. You will be very missed Joshua! You were and are very loved.

We were friends of Dave & Nadine during our time at Parkway Baptist. Our Daughter Selina, loved Joshua like a little brother. Even after moving to Newnan, we kept in touch. Fishing at West Point Lake, cooking out and spending dinner time together. Joshua was part of our family spending time riding the four wheeler with Selina. He was polite, cute as a button and showed us love. He will be missed, his smile on Facebook and we plan on seeing him again in Heaven. He couldn't have asked for a more loving and Godly Mother while he was here on earth. Now God has his loving hand to hold. Joshua, We love you! Praying for you Nadine, we love you!

Joshua was not just a my best friend he was like a little brother to me. We always hanged out at church. I always made sure he was always having fun and happy. We would hang out when our parents got together. I will always remember his favorite song . He loved to sing when he was a little boy. He would sing the song I'm in the Lord's Army. I will always remember him singing and his cute smile that he always had. Well Josh now you are watching over me making sure I'm always smiling and singing your song. I always loved you and always will love you. Rip my best friend my little brother!!!

Joshua I wish we would have got to spend more time together, but being so far away made that hard to do. The memory that really stuck with me all these years was when we had went and found some little frogs. I wanted to keep them but you had other plans for them. You told me you were going to kill them. Man I was so upset and so mad at you. Turns out you were just being ornery. You just wanted to get a rise out of me lol. I'll miss you buddy. I love you! Have fun with great grandpa up there in heaven!
