"So many memories came flooding back all at once when I saw your dad today. It feels like it just happened. It doesn't feel like several months have gone by. You had such an effect on so many more people than you ever realized and the world feels a bit emptier without you in it. :'("

"Hi I do not know the victim or the victims father however I know one of their friends and I came upon this and this wonderful sounding young man died on my honorary grandmothers birthday who died 3 years ago. From what I have read about this memorial this young man was a bright shining star and I am glad it was fast that he didn't feel any pain and that he now rests with God."
"I miss you everyday, my love.
You will always be in my heart. I will love you every single day for the rest of my life.
And I know that when my time comes, you will meet me at heavens gates with your arms wide open. I love you. <3"
"Tomorrow will be 2 weeks and it still seems like a bad dream. I still keep hoping to wake up or something and find that none of it was real. I'll see or hear something and think to call him before realizing that nobody will answer. I will always hold on to the great memories!"
"Thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. You will always be inside our hearts. We love and miss you Josh. R.I.P."
"You are a great josh. You always made people laugh and you always had a smile on your face. I really am gonna miss you. I will see you again someday i hope. Keep smiling."
"Candle lit by cecilia zito, I didnt know for long, but he has such a warm heart and really a good person. He will missed especially when he called me mama, when he came to see his mother next door to me. A great man, will never be forgotten in my heart"
""Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"- John 11:25-26
Find comfort in the words of our Lord Jesus."
"Josh your life was full of love, kindness & purpose. Death is not the end, but the beginning of eternity with Jesus. Josh, your precious smile, hugs & concern will always be in my heart. You were like one of my children & I feel as if I lost a son. I thank God for the years shared knowing you. You are loved & missed, but never forgotten!"
"You never know how long you will have with someone, Time can be fleating. So make as many memories with your loved ones as you can. I could never say the right words to describe my cousin. He always knew how to make you smile, he made friends every where he went.He will be greatly missed by all. Good bye Josh, you will be dearly missed."
"i didnt know u but i am sarahs husband i hope u find peace and so does the family"
"I still can't believe your gone. You were such an amazing person taken to young. You will be missed dearly by everyone who knew you my friend. knowing your in a better place numbs the pain of your loss you'll always be on my mind and in my heart Josh R.I.P buddy"
"although we never really talked much after high school there will be a space missing in my heart for him, I shall say that because the last time I saw him was at steak and shake randomly while i was with my boyfriend (which he had apparently known in cap like 10 yrs ago) i guess its a really small town bc of that so I know we r all feelin this. i send my love and prayers to his family rip"
"It seems like yesterday when Joshua would run from the other boys because they were picking on him up to my house and hang with me until Gene would get home. He was such a sweetie, he will be missed by all his friends and family. He had his whole life in front of him now he's gone to be with the other angels who look over us."
"Your light will be missed here on earth but you are now a star in the heavens."
"to my baby boy nephew... you will always be in my heart... give grandma a kiss from me... you two take care of each other until the rest of us get there. I miss you baby."
"I once heard that friends are just the family that you get to pick. You were my brother Josh and you know having a family was always something I longed for, you became that family and helped to fill a void that was in my heart. I love you bro."
"Words could never begin to explain just how wonderful and gifted Josh really was.From the 1st time we meet him we knew he was different and very special he had a gift and everyone knew it. And a heart of gold. Some of us feel God new what he had when making Josh that he didn't want him to spoil here on earth with all this worldly rottiness so he took Josh to keep him preserved. Love u Josh"
"I knew you long before you went to high school. God has called you home too early. I remember hanging.out at your house with your brothers and you always had a smile on your face. You will be.dearly missed."
