The first time I saw your face you were laid in my arms by a nurse the world finally made sense. Big brown beautiful eyes looking up at me for security and comfort not knowing that you were doing the same for me. Now that I look in your eyes for the last time I pray the Lord gives you the same security and comfort that we both looked for one another to. God bless, I know you are in a better place. Love always and forever mom.

I am still lost for words. Joshua will always be in my heart. He loved my grandson so much. Not only that, he was like a son to me. No matter what ups and downs he went through, he still would keep that smile on his face. To his Mom, Ray'Shawn, and his entire family, know that Joshua is now Resting in total Peace. Joshua will never be forgotten.  May God give you all Comfort and Peace.
