              I don't know about you guys but this time I'm just pissed off! I hate this stupid disease! I know God has a plan for each of us that we don't understand but I'm sorry, this just pisses me off. Why is it always the good people? There are plenty of people in this world that are not even close to people like Josh, Paul, Jamie, Shane, Artie, Juan, etc. Why do the good ones have to go first? I feel like we haven't talked to Josh for so long we never got to really tell him how we all feel. It's so unfair.

                I know why good people get disease and bad don't… good people suffer, good people care, good people feel, good people are sad when there is unjustice in the world, good people worry,  good people help others and in the end it takes tole on their health…

                I hate this so much, cause it's so unfair…

                    Thanks Mom.  As heart-wrenching as it was, I was able to post at the funural home site.  Thank you for the link.

                        I am so sorry, I am struggling for words.  He was a special person who supported so many of us on this forum.   May God bless his family and I send special thoughts and prayers for his children, may they cherish their beautiful memories.  Rest in Peace, dear man, you were inspirational to us all.

                            Another truly sad day on this board (there seem to be so many these days)……I am heartbroken for Josh's family…..again, there really are no adequate words……

                            Gina- if you are reading these posts, please know how loved Josh was amongst this group.

                              I have been trying to post for hours, but can't find words to express my sadness and disbelief….

                              Still can't…

                              My deepest and sincerest condolences to his beautiful family….

                                No adequate words.  Josh and I joined this forum around the same time.  Like me, he has young children.  (The same is true of Jamie.)  Although it's sad when we lose anyone, no young child should suffer the loss of a parent.  Really heartbreaking.

                                  Josh was a beautiful man that I considered my friend/brother.  I always will.  Hollding his family in my heart.  C

You offered your body to endure treatments that will benefit others and add to the body of knowledge that will someday find a cure. God bless you and your dear family always.

                                                Jake found a tumor tonight. He believed he was clean.  Devasted. I logged on, kind of afraid….devasted again. I think you can only know this heartache by living it. Very sad for Joshs' loved ones. He was adored here by so many.

                                                    Oh, Kerri … devastated for you and Jake.  And we are all grieving the loss of Josh — the only thing that makes it any better is to know how much he was loved by this community.  We all feel the same about you and Jake.
