I’m sorry to read of your recent loss especially of someone so young. We are never truly prepared for such a loss as this. Even though your grief is inconsolable and the comforting words of others may seem inadequate I hope that in time you will be consoled by your fond memories of Joshua and in God’s sure promise to bring him back to live on a beautiful paradise earth where sickness, pain, and death will be no more. What a happy reunion that will be. Again, my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Joshua Nichols
