My condolences to the family for your loss. May the personal memories the family and friends have be a source of comfort, and may the promises that God gives be your source of strength, hope, and peace. Acts 24:15 says: “There will be a resurrection…”. For more information on this scriptural hope, please visit www.jw.org.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I went to school with both Josh and Miranda at Mechanicsburg. He was always a very nice person. May your hearts hurt a little less knowing that Josh will forever be in many people’s memories.

Bob and Roberta Arthur Timmons - Nov 9, 2014

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
