Janet: On this Canada Day, we're all thinking of Joshua, and hope that knowing your loss is being shared will be of some comfort to you. I know Joshua looking down would be so proud of you and to know he had so many friends who miss him and think of him. Take care of yourself..
Janet. I attended the Tribute to your Son. A beautiful and memorable service. I still remember him in my prayers every day and I also pray that your pain at being "temporarily" parted from him will become easier to bear.
First and foremost I want to thank all those that came out to the Tribute I gave for my Son Joshua. It was incredibly touching to me to see the amount of people that did not even know my Son come out to pay their honour and respect for Joshua. For those that were also there that knew him I would like to thank them for taking the time also to come out and pay Tribute to my Son. Joshua, you were an extraordinary Son that I miss more and more as time goes on. The excruciating pain of losing you is overwhelming for me. You were everything to your Mother and now all that has been taken away from me. I never thought I would ever be in this life without you. You were so full of life with so much ahead of you but for a reason only God knows he felt your journey in this life was over, even though as your Mother I feel your life was cut far, far to short. Joshua, you are a Hero to many people but to your Mother you will always be My Little Cub who held out your hand to me a long time ago. Gripping it softly, I grabbed hold of your heart, and I knew it became a part of me forever. You brightened my life with your caring heart and beautiful smile. I will always cherish you Son and want you to know how very proud I am of you. I will love you forever Joshua and will rejoice at the time I will see you again in Heaven.
Janet, my heart goes out to you at the loss of your Son. The Tribute you gave for him was so overwhelming and touching. You showed so many aspects of your Son it was incredible. Your Son was a Hero to all of us and through you I know he will never be forgotten. Your love for him is so evident. I pray God will keep you and strengthen you. I am always there for you.
I was Honoured to attend the Memorial for Joshua. We Will Remember Him.

Dear Miss Baker:
As a Mother whose Son is currently serving in Afghanistan, I send you my deepest sympathy in the loss of your Only Son, Joshua. My prayers are with you at this difficult time. Joshua our Hero, thank you. You will not be forgotten.
It was an honour and a privilege to attend and be a part of a beautiful tribute for Joshua. I pray each day that no Mother or family will have to go through what Janet has. Janet, your son was a Hero and will be forever. God bless you and keep you safe.
