    I can only think of the peace you must be feeling that Josh is no longer suffering and he is in Heaven where he can commune with those who have gone ahead of him. Take solace that he is with God and He can take the best care of Josh. I pray ..for your family as you continue on the road and know that Josh is watching over you all.

    Pam, my deepest condolences to you and your family. The loss of a son leaves a huge void in our hearts, but there is much solice in knowing their entrance into eternity is truly a blessing when their journey here in this life has been burdensome for them. Your Josh was always a most kind and respectful young gentleman each and Every time he was in my presence. A good man. I pray God’s comfort for you today and all the days ahead as you adjust to Josh’s absence from this life. Our children will always be missed deeply, and today I send you a huge hug as I understand your heart. Love in Christ
