My dearest Joshua, your time on earth was too short, but the time we had together, I’m truly grateful for! You always lit up a room when you walked in. You always were so carrying and compassionate towards others. I will carry these memories forever. Rest peaceful my beloved nephew until we meet again. With love always, Aunt Mary, Castroville, Texas.
