He was brought into this world by two beautiful and strong individuals, and he is remembered by all who loved him. Josh's parents, Marcel and Sam, and Josh's sister, Jill, should be proud and feel honored that they are blessed with such an incredible and truly beautiful soul to watch over them. He will live on in everyone he touched.
Josh's smile always managed to light up the faces of those he surrounded himself with. He had a special charm, or aura, that always followed him wherever he went. His family and his music were the most important influences in his life. He was sweet, charming and hard-working. He knew what his goals were and always strove hard to get them. He was an important figure to all of his friends and family -- always giving the extra hug or advice at no cost. He knew the true meaning of friendship and was a giver in everything that he did. When thinking back through all the memories that we made, I am so incredibly thankful for having a friend like Josh in my life. He taught me to accept life courageously and to be proud of all that I achieve. Josh was a beloved friend whose memory will thrive forever in the hearts of all the people that he touched. I hold Josh close to my heart, and because of this our friendship will last forever.
