So sorry for your loss. He’s been a great friend since I was 7 years old. Used to hang out and spend the night at his house. I’m heartbroken for his parents and family. Randy and his wife and Josh’s sister were always so generous towards me. RIP buddy, I’ll see you later.

To say that Josh was a great guy is an understatement. I was blessed to be his aunt for 34 yrs. He was absolutely one of the best kids I was ever around. As his aunt I got to keep him a lot. I got to take him places and spend a lot of time with him and his sister and brother.
Josh had some medical issues starting when he was just a baby but he was the bravest and sweetest child you would ever meet. He was always smiling and making friends. His favorite times (as well as mine and my sisters’) was spending time with family, whether on a trip or just together in someone’s back yard. His best friend was his cousin Kevin.
As the years went by and he become a young man, his sweetness and generosity towards others never changed. To my baby boy: I will always love you❤️. Our only consolation is knowing You are in heaven. Save me a place sweet boy. I’ll meet up with you, mamaw, and papaw some day!
