Josh was a hero to those who loved and knew him, and to so many who never had the opportunity to know him personally during his fierce battle with cancer. He inspired us to live life to the fullest with smiles on our faces, and happiness in our hearts. Feeling assured we will see him again, because he Fought the good fight, He finished his course, and He kept the faith (II Timothy 4:7).
