    Josh and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Josh, you are going to hear a lot of words of encouragement and a lot of condolences for the loss of your father, but please rely on the strength God has to offer you. Your father is in heaven with our Father God. It doesn’t matter if you attend church every Sunday…..what matters is that you believe Jesus died for your sins, which you state your father did believe. Being in the flesh hurts with all the emotions we endure and questions we are left with. What you need to do now is connect with God and let yourself grieve properly. I am here for you anytime and you know that.
    God Bless,
    Melissa Magrum (Dubord)
