Thank-you so much for all that you have done for our family. I speak for all of us when I say, “We are truly blessed to have you all a part of our lives!” The comments we have been reading over the last week have been a true blessing. This has been a very hard time for us. I hope you know how truly thankful we all are to have you. Today would be Joshua’s 14th Birthday. It is being celebrated in a way we never thought we would be celebrating. We thought we would be taking him to the D.O.T to get his permit, because we all know how excited he was to finally get to drive. It has been very hard to go about our everyday lives the last 9 months, but each day we are given new blessings and things to be thankful for. We have had a tremendous amount of love shown from our followers.

Some may think that we don’t read all of the kind words that are posted on our Facebook and website, but we do. We love reading what our followers have to say. As a family that has lost one of our pieces, we would like you to take the time and love on each other. As parents, do what our parents ALWAYS DID/DO, tell your children how much you love them and how proud of them you are. You never know when your last day with them may be. All you can do as parents is teach your children and love on them. Support your children in any way possible. Never give them the excuse of, “Not right now, I’m too busy, I’m too tired”, because the day may come when they wont be around to ask anymore. We think back on all the silly things that Joshua did, even the annoying sound effects he would always make, and just wish we could have all those things back.
Last year for Joshua’s birthday he asked for a guitar. So, my parents got him a brand new guitar, and paid for him to take lessons. He absolutely loved it. He told my mom she was going to be famous for being his mom, and that thousands of people would know us. He said he was going to be a “Rock Star” someday. He said he was going to travel the world and that all of us kids could go too. That my sisters were going to be his back up singers and dancers, my littlest brother would be his drummer, my dad and other brother would do whatever the guys do, that my mom would just be the Mama, and that I would be his manager, because I am good and keeping him in line and making sure things always workout. He said this same thing again the night that he left us. His eyes would light up when he would talk about this. The night he died, my mom was going to record him playing some of the stuff he had learned and made up on his guitar, but it never happened. A couple of weeks later we had his phone and I was going through all the silly videos he had of him and the kids on it and I found a recording that he did of himself singing. It was amazing. I wish he could have finished it, or kept singing more. The only line that he recorded was, “When I was young, I met this girl… I always thought she would rock my world.” I love listening to it over and over. It is the little memories that we are finding of him everywhere. He was and is truly a very special kid and has touched so many lives both when he was here and now.
Please keep doing your part in spreading the awareness. You can share our website or pages to help put an end to this. We know we need Joshua here with us, but God needed him more. All we can do is know that we will see him again someday. Have a blessed day and always remember to love each other the way God loves us. That is how Joshua lived.
