Paul, Valerie, Christopher, & Sarah- Our family will ALWAYS cherish the times spent together with yours. I can recall watching our kids playing in the yard like it was just yesterday. Josh's love and warmth were felt by all who knew him. His smile would light up the room. May the Lord bless you during this difficult time. Much love is sent your way.

Paul and Valerie... With fond memory we recall the special Christmas Eve shared with Joshua. We know He believed, and needed no proof, but his innocent, joyful youth really shined through during Santa's personal visit! It's comforting to think he fell asleep that night smiling................BELIEVING.
