Josh,
I haven't written anything in a long while. It's so hard to believe that it's coming up on 2 years since you left us to become our heavenly angel. My life and heart will never be the same. I still miss you so much every single day. I keep thinking I wish you would be here for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I wanted to cook for you. You always enjoyed all the food around the holidays. We had a birthday celebration for you for your birthday on Sept l5. You would have been 27. We had a lot of friends and family here, the only thing missing was YOU! You would have had such a good time with all your buddies. I miss not having those memories of you and we had so little time together over the five years you were in Italy and deployed. I lived for your phone calls and emails. Son, you will always be in my heart. I will miss you and grieve for you until I take my last breath on this earth. I know you will be there waiting for me and I can't wait to see you and give you a big hug and kiss. I love you always my sweet, baby boy. Always, MOM:)

Dearest Josh,
Its so hard to believe that its been a year. I will never forget that horrible call from Carley, and the many trying days and weeks that followed. I will always regret not answering your last call, I would never have imagined that in 3 days you would be gone forever. You would be so proud of your sister, and her girls are growing up so quickly I wish you were here to see them. We all came out to visit on Friday, all together, your mom and dad, Donna and Eric, Carley, me and Naiya. The world just isn't the same with out you. Miss you & love you

Josh, we all miss you so much. I can't believe it's been a year already. I still have a voicemail message on my machine from the last time you called. I can't bear to erase it even though I've copied it for safe keeping. I miss your phone calls "Hey mom, it's Josh." It would take me a minute to realize it was my "other" Josh! You just laughed at me everytime! Don't stop reminding us all in little ways of your fun personality and love that you gave so freely.

Love, your "other mom"

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.


The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”


I did not know Joshua, but I am remembering
his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.
