    So many empty hearts left behind at the loss of this young man. Sheila and Ron you should be so proud that in the short life he had he left such a great impression on all those he encountered. He was strong in so many ways, honest, hard working, kind, considerate, respectful and the list could go on and on. I never saw him without a smile so full of positive energy even in his shyness. While working at our dealership he broke his leg and asked if he could still work with a broken leg and crutches, mind you not an easy task washing cars with crutches but to our amazement he showed us how it was done. He was one of the hardest working teenagers I had seen. One amazing kid who is going to be greatly missed. Rest in peace Sweet Josh, until we meet again.
    My Heart is with all of his wonderful family, may God bring the comfort that only he can.
