I cannot begin to express my feelings of sympathy for this tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers will go up for the whole family as they go through this horrible time. May the peace of God come over you knowing that you will see Josh again in heaven. The pain will lessen as time goes by, even though it seems like a knife in your hearts right now. Stay close to God and He will stay close to you. It is His promise to His children. He will never leave you or forsake you, even in your darkest hours. Love to you all! Cindy

To My Son Josh,

Since God took you home, not a moment has passed that I don't think of you. Your memory is in every breath I take. Your unforgettable smile is engraved in my mind. So many have said that you lived every day to the fullest. I believe that is true. You were a truly unique individual. You had more strength than anyone I have ever known. You always were able to handle whatever came your way...no matter the difficulty. You still kept a smile on your face and moved on. I admired that about you. You and I were so similar, but yet so different. I think that made our bond unbreakable.

I watched you take your first breath, and I watched you take your last. Those two events will always be the highest and lowest points of my life.

You were cheated out of so many good things in life...love, marriage and children. I would have given my own life to give those opportunities back to you.

I thought I would have more time with you, but God had other plans. I never got to say goodbye properly or tell you how deeply I love you. It is truly unconditional love that only a parent can have for a child. I know we will meet again in a better place.

I am as confidant in that as I am in the fact that he has his arms around you now. That does bring me some peace.

I'll say "goodbye" for now, baby. We'll see each other again soon. All my love. Mom.

Dear Joshua Bland Family,
When I heard about Joshua I was floored with disbelief. You see I only met Josh once, but the time I met Josh will probably be under the best conditions a person can meet. I was at Word Of Faith (Downtown) just a couple weeks ago when Josh came in with Rich off of the bus. The more we shared with Josh about the Lord, the hungrier he got for the things of God! He didn't want to leave and wanted to help. A sister got off the elevator with her hands full and Josh just kept helping, to be honest his willingness to help would put most to shame, but it was a blessing to see his fire and zeal! Rich asked him if he wanted to be born-again and he said yes! So Elder Sheppard, Rich and I prayed with him and he was saved right there in a basement church, in the middle of downtown Dayton, just a hundred feet from City Hall and one thing I can say without a doubt, is that today Joshua Bland's name is in the Book of Life and he is in Heaven with Jesus and you can be comforted by this! So precious Bland family my prayers are with you (for peace, forgiveness, and comfort) and I send to you my condolences during your time of mourning, and we at Word of Faith Christian Ministries mourn with you, and thank-you for sharing Joshua with us, but you can rejoice at this, knowing that Josh is, without a doubt in a better place. The bible says there will be no more crying or sorrow there and I look forward to the day when I can see Brother Joshua in Heaven! May God bless , keep, and comfort you and I hope to meet you all soon! We Love You!

To Josh's Family
Words could never express how sorry I am for your loss. We were fortunate to spend a few fun times with Josh when he stayed with Trisha and Steve, going to the movies and watching football games. He was always fun and very considerate. I know he will be missed very much.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
