    Well, I asked a few days ago and got no response, so I have no idea who posted these.
    FYI:
    1. Some of the info. is wrong.
    2. I'm not sure of your intentions, but for the record these were all written when Josh was in high school and have no bearing on the man that he became.

    Joshua came last Monday to my home, to repair a leak under my kitchen sink. He asked me 'where do you go to church? ' I told him and then asked him, 'how did you know I went to church? ' His reply continues to amaze me, 'I didn't, but I believe everyone needs to have a relationship with Jesus! ' Amen to that! ! ! He said that was a standard question he always asked his clients. God has used him many times I'm sure to touch a life, he definitely left an imprint on my husband and I. May God wrap His loving arms around Josh's family and may they feel our Lord's love, comfort and mercy. I'll be praying for you.

    Josh... None of us can imagine a world without you in it. You have touched and encouraged so many of us. I feel your precense everywhere. For you to be taken from us so early and so suddenly seems so cruel, but God must have had his reasons. We won't understand until we see you again. Until then Josh thank you for leaving a little bit of yourself in each and everyone of us who miss you here on earth. Sweet Dreams Now Josh. Luv you Brother! ! !

Best Poem of Joshua N.

I'M Only Worth A Penny

Raised in this world of wonder and excitement
Taught that everybody has a chance
Learned to love my neighbors too
Saw the joy of song and dance
At age five I cut my knee
Daddy told me not to cry
'Be a big boy strong and tough,
Be a big boy just like me.'
My eyes were opened to the world and I saw
An experience awaited me
Forgot the joy I knew then
All the things that I could be
Turned sixteen and got a life
Punched a clock from four to ten
The Mc Donalds' taught me true
Money holds away the strife
The value of my life, and what I can share
I ...
