Words can't explain how I feel. I'm happy that you're with Popop in Heaven, but the next minute I'm angry and sad that I can no longer be with you, enjoy my time with you and see you again. I'm going to be full of mixed emotions today because I have to carry my loved Uncle Josh in a casket today. I have to carry you... the person that I've grown up with most of my life and I never knew this day would happen. I hope you're watching over us in Heaven and I wish we took more pictures together. I want to ask you for my forgiveness of being a brat when I was little and how I am when I was older, I loved you, more than you could understand. I just want a simple goodbye, but I guess I ran out of time. I'm dressing up a little bit for you because I know you wouldn't want us to dress up and you would want to see our normal crazy family, the normal crazy family that loves you and is breaking apart and is hurting so much without you. I have to write a poem for you because I want to put that inside of your casket and it will be personal, but I love you Josh... I love you a whole lot. I miss you and I hope to see you soon, goodbye.
P.S I had to use my second note because my first one was too big, but I love you!❤
We're so sorry to hear about Josh. I always looked forward to seeing him walking up the street so we could have a few minutes to talk. He will be sorely missed. We will be praying for you and if you need anything at all let us know. The Shephards: Joe, Tiana, Harley and Mackenzie
Ive known you since you were a little boy, then you grew up and we worked together. Ive seen you become a very handsome young man with a heart of gold and always had a smile.
I grieve along with your family, however you were called home to the Lord.
I was driving to work the other day and thought what a beautiful sky. I felt you saying, this is nothing....I see do much beauty here and I'm fine.
Even though everyone will have an emptiness we know you're home.
