Ever since I have Became to know josh, I could tell he was a fun loving person. Then he met his sole mate Toni that have two wonderful twins. He was a fun loving, easy going, and always joking. I have never met someone who loved life no matter what came his way! He will be gratefully missed by so many! I Know that he is looking down from heaven and taking care of his family, because that is the type of person he was.
I wonder if you know how many lives you have touched,
Do you know that people here love you so much?
Can you even know how many dreams you made come true,
Or if you can hear the voices saying I love you?
Do you know how many lives you have changed,
And how many lives you completely rearranged?
I wish I could have lot more time,
Because I can't picture the rest of my life without you here.
Just another chance to spend time, and share a laugh
Another day of fun with you is what I'd like to have.
Do you know you'll be greatly missed by us all?
Just more times I want to hear you're voice when I call.
Just one more laugh, one more time to see you walk through the door
Another smile, another story, another hug, another day...Just one more.
