“I had the pleasure of cutting grass with Josh for a summer and he left an impression on me. Such a fun and genuine person. Whenever I would see him out I would always stop to talk with him because people like Josh are rare. He always left me with a smile. It broke my heart as I stared at his phone number in my cell and knew that he wouldn't pick up.”

“I met Josh while interning at Legal Aid in Nevada this past summer. I was essentially Erin's sidekick for all steps of Josh's case while he was with us. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Josh and I grew to appreciate the passion for which Josh had for his son. Dealing with some of the clients that we do, sometimes you find yourself wondering how committed they are to us, to their kids, and to the process. I never had any doubts with Josh and his commitment to his son and I deeply admire him for it. Simply put, Josh was my favorite client this summer. I am glad he was a part of my experience this summer and I took it very hard when I found out what happened. Please accept my sincere condolences and my best wishes to your family and especially Josh's son.”
