Josh will always hold a special place in my heart. He was one of my church teen babies! I think of all the memories we have made together at Northern Heights Baptist Church with the youth group. Josh was such a big part of those years. My prayer for each of you is that you will find comfort in knowing Josh is no longer in pain and with his mama, Sue. I love y'all and will continue to lift you up in prayer.

My deepest heart felt condolences to Chesley and family. The loss of a child is a very deep pain that will never fade. I pray that God Bless you and your family with the strength you need to make it through this devastating loss.

Becky, the kids, and Josh's family: I truly am sorry to hear of such a young life being lost. He fought a tough hard battle, and even though it feels like a loss to you, to him he won by going home. Find peace in knowing he is not sick anymore nor is he suffering. While your hearts are broken, he is whole again. He will always be with you. I hope you find peace and understanding during this tough times.
