  1. Josh, I am sorry for your lose and I am reflecting on how I felt when I lost my dad. It has been over 5 years and it hurts while I am typing this message. I feel it is a good thing to feel that way because that means his life was impactful in so many ways for me and my brother and sister. God bless and I am thinking about you in this tough time. The good times you remember will help you during these times. I wish you the best.
