Joshua J Garrison

The hardest thing we ever had to do was let go.

Our Joshua James made his appearance on 1/4/2008 & changed our worlds forever. Our journey with Joshua was hard & complicated but even more rewarding! You know the saying it takes a village, it did & we were so blessed with all the loving support from our family, friends & the medical professionals who became just like family to Joshua & to us.

Joshua had an impact on everyone he ever met. His strength, compassion & sense of humor were contagious. He made us happier & he made us all smile. He brought out the good everyone. You could not miss the love that radiated from his little body & he had a way of sucking you in, often with a silly little saying or a county song. Joshua changed people. He made us want to be better. He loved & he loved hard!

Joshua was an avid Seahawks fan, loved to sing county tunes, play video games, & spend time with the people he loved. He never passed on the opportunity to hold a baby or go the races.

There aren't many people that had the courage & will to live like our Joshua. He beat the odds & his body fought each day to survive. It was this amazing tenacity & perseverance that gave us 13 wonderful years & a lifetime of memories. Joshua was an amazing human & to say we were blessed by knowing him would be an understatement.

We are comforted knowing that Joshua was welcomed Home by his grandpa Duane, great grandma same-same, grandpa Leonard, & uncles Kenny & Rodney.

He leaves behind; his parents: Leah Garfield & James Garrison, siblings: Trevor, Emmett & Shyla (Trinity & Izak), grandmas: Betty Garrison & Julie Garfield, his grandpa & best friend Ray Chandler, & many special aunts, uncles, cousins & friends.

Our family would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the medical staff at Community Hospital, Western Montana Clinic, Seattle Children's Hospital & Partners in Home Care. We couldn't have done it without your loving support.

We would like to invite you to The Dark Horse at 1101 Strand Ave on Thursday 7/15 from 4-9 to Celebrate the Life of our sweet brave Joshua. We will be having his favorites; tacos & Pepsi!

If love alone could have kept you here, you would have lived forever. We love you as big as the sky, peanut. We'll see you soon.
