  • It’s strange how people pop into your head out of the blue that you haven’t seen in 20 years. The day before Josh passed away I was telling a story about how he went above and beyond and did something amazing for me in high school and I never really got to thank him. The next day I heard he had passed away. Hopefully writing this, he will somehow know that I appreciate what he did. Thank you, Josh. Every time I look at those books, I’ll think of you.

    • Dave,
      Thank you for sharing this wonderful story. I’m glad to know Josh will continue to live on through our memories of him.

  • Dear Phil and Anna,
    My heart breaks for you. I am so sorry to hear of this. I will be keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.
