Josh was called home Friday to keep watchful eye over
us from the sky. No words can describe the person, the
man, he truly was. If you knew him, he made your life
better in some way. He adored his son Ben, who he will
live through the rest of his life. You will also find him in
every lake across the great state of Louisiana. Josh was
a family man, who loved everyone around him and would
not hesitate to drop everything to lend a hand.
We will see him again in heaven where there will be unlimited
Johnny’s Pizza, lakes full of fish, miles of road to
ride a motorcycle, tons of crawfish and unlimited laughter.
God only knows why he wanted a big country boy amongst
his angels, but he got one heck of a man. Josh will now
live through Ben. He will live through his family and all
of the people whose life he touched. This isn’t a goodbye,
it’s a “see ya later, y’all.”
