My deepest condolences to Josh's mother Kelly and his children. Josh played a big part in my teenage years and I am eternally grateful for each and every memory I have. I can only imagine the conversation and laughs he and David are having right now. Kelly please know that while his life was tragically cut short he has many friends who will always remember him.
