Jill and Laura,
We can only imagine the pain you are going thru. I hope each day becomes a little easier and that the support of family and friends ease a little of that hurt.
Jill, you are experiencing every Mother’s nightmare and my heart does ache for you. Losing a child has to the be hardest thing a Mother could ever go thru. I am so, so sorry for your loss of Josh.
Laura, Danny told me how strong you were today and I admire that. Josh,I’m sure, would be proud of you.
Our thoughts, prayers and sympathy will be with you for all the difficult days ahead.
Jill and family, there are no words that i can say that will ease your pain. but just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers in your time of need.
Jill and family our prayers and thoughts are with you.
May God Bless you and your Family
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
I will always remember Josh for his kind heart and contagious smile.
To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.
Sue and family, its been many years since we talked, but I recognized your family’s names in the newspaper announcement and wanted to say that I am thinking of all of you during this time. I lost my son 10/10/2008 at age 33 and I truly feel your pain. The days ahead will be difficult and you will come to cherish each and every memory and photo tht you have of your son. Please feel free to contact me if you get to that point where you want to talk to someone who has been there. Meanwhile, I’m praying for all of you as you deal with your loss.
My prayers to the family. Words cannot express my sorrow. May god and family be with you in your time of need………..i know form all the stories he was a great young man.
We are so sorry to hear about Josh. He brought us so many fond memories growing up with our boys. We will remember him always as a great baseball player. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
