Hey dad, I just was missing you today and wanted to tell you that I love you with all of my heart. Today is the 10th so it's the one-year anniversary, I didn't realize until recently how much you taught me, I know we didn't always get along but you were so funny and made every day so much happier. I hope you're watching over us and listening when we talk to you. I love you, Merry Christmas!

your daughter, Abigale

Josh we shared so many memories and laughs in our childhood. We fell out of contact over the years but our friendship was always in my heart. I express my deepest sympathy to your family with your loss. God has taken you home and hopefully among your friends and family you will become my guardian angel watching over me. Rest In Peace my friend, Rest In Peace. With my deepest sympathy, Alan Robison
