Josh was my oldest child and the light of my life. He had a heart of gold and a smile that could brighten every room. Josh had a buddy that was drunk and wanted to drive to go get cigarettes. Josh would not let his friend leave, so he drove his friend to the store, and on the way back, he lost control of the car and hit a tree. Both boys died, Josh had not been drinking, he was just trying to keep a friend safe. It breaks my heart everyday that he is not here with us. He would be 27 years old this year. The first five years after his death, I had a very hard time with everything, now, the only way I can cope some days is to not think about him, then I feel guilty. I miss his face, his voice, his hugs, and holding his hand when we talked.
His dad, sister Jill, brother Jordan and all his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins miss him dearly.
“It is love not reason, that is stronger than death.”
“It is because the human spirit deep down, that all lives intersect. That death just doesn’t take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.”
These quotes have been very important to me, and even though it does not bring Josh back, we are confident that he is in Heaven with God and the other family and friends who have gone before us.
Love you always Joshua~
