Not sure what to say?

Joshua and his family will be in our prayers. I cannot imagine how Debbie, Milton an Caleb must feel. I have been friends with Sharon and her family for over 25 years. My heart aches for all of them. We love you and we are so very sorry. If there is anything you need, do not hesitate to ask.

I remember when Joshua came to pre-school with his Mom & Dad. I was his teacher at Westshore Alliance Partnership School and I watched him grow. I couldn't believe it when I heard about this, I thought maybe it was a different Joshua but then I saw his Dad on t.v. and my heart was saddened. I can't believe such a young life was taken long before his time. I know that he will be missed.
My thought and prayers go out to his family.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Rankin Family. Josh will surely be missed.

My prayers to Josh's family and Friends. Rest in Paradise Josh.

I have only good memories of this young man. I got to know him in his Senior year at RHS. He was my TA in the IB office. he was always very respectful and willing to help in any way. I enjoyed his great spirit for life and that sweet smile.
The Lord has taken him home where he will be safe in God's arms.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the parents of Josh. No parent wants to bury a child.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Rankin family!
