My condolences to the family for the loss of their loving son Josh. No words can take away your pain but I hope in time your sadness will turn to hope as you recall God’s promises of a day when death will be no more and the earth will be filled with an abundance of peace” for all those called back to a resurrection of life. Revelation 21:4, Psalms 37:11, 29; John 5:28,29. My prayers are with you.
