    I knew Josh from working at Edison Elementary and Moorhead High School.
    It took me a while but we finally connected through a comment he made to me and I took it as a joke. From then on, when he would come to the office, I could see his nice smile and a twinkle in his eye. It was so nice. I hope everyone in his family remembers his nice smile.

    We have enjoyed Josh so much over the years. He was at the lake last summer and it was so fun to see him.
    I have always enjoyed his sense of humor and the gleam in his eye. I can not begin to know your grief – but know that you are not alone. We are upholding you in prayer. Such an awful time of year to lose someone, but what a time to enter the golden gates of heaven! I am so glad that we have God’s promises and know that we will be reunited with him someday. Blessings to you and your family.

    We were shocked to read the news of Joshua’s death on your Facebook page this morning. Our hearts and our prayers are with you over your loss.

    We are both saddened by Josh’s passing, but we also rejoice with you in knowing that he has gone home to be with Jesus in Heaven! No more suffering…no more pain…no more seizures. He is completely and totally healed and is safely in the arms of Jesus Christ in Heaven!

    God bless you all.
