I am the lunch room manager at East Shore High and I always looked forward to the days when Joshua would come through the lunch line. He was ALWAYS polite and kind to me and always had nice things to say. I did not get the chance to know him very well but I always saw something very special when I looked at him. He always had the look of determination in his face and was always reading while he ate. He was a great example to many of us. I was very sad to hear what happened. The world will miss such a determined spirit and soul....thanks so much for making this website so that we could learn about something many of us never expected to hear about Joshua. He was always too busy being kind and helpful to have ever showed he was dealing with this. My heart and prayers go out to his family.....thanks for taking such great care of him while he spent time on this earth. You will be given many blessings for your efforts.

I will always have fond memories of Josh and his sunflowers. He was the most polite person I have known. God bless his beautiful family.

I worked as a counselor at East Shore High School where Josh was one of my favorite people. His spirit exuded love wherever he went and I am very proud of him for sticking to finishing school while he fought his internal battles. I am proud to know him and file him under the category of "Why I Continue Doing What I Do." His beautiful soul touched many and his life is not wasted but spent well.

I am sorry for your loss. I am confident he is continuing his journey and helping others on their way. He's a great kid.

I work at East Shore High School and want to express my appreciation to Josh for the opportunity I had to get to know him. He was very nice and fun to talk to.
Reading about him on this site I have come to realize that I wish I knew more about our kids.
Thanks for sharing his life with us. He is a great kid and has blessed the lives of many.

I am a teacher at East Shore High School and had the privilege of interacting with and helping Joshua finish his social studies so that he could graduate. Joshua was always concerned about understanding a concept or an answer as opposed to just knowing what the answer was. He really had a desire to understand what he was learning and this is a remarkable trait. He was never shy to ask a question or to ask for clarifications. He was also very good at helping me to correct items in the coursework that were wrong or misspelled. Joshua was also very kind and would always ask how I was doing and was always very thoughtful in listening to my answer. Joshua will be a student that I will never forget as he made my classroom a better place! Thank you for this website so that I could learn more about Joshua and know more of what an incredible person he is.

One of the special memories I have of Josh is when he was about 10 years old. His grandfather had a row of apple trees that were laden with fruit, and Josh asked if he could have some for a project. I was assuming that he wanted to sell them to make money, but instead, we loaded them up into a big cart, and he took them around the neighborhood to give away. Some people offered to pay for them, but he was insistent that they were for free. It was just one example of how he could have profited from them, but instead chose to be nice and make someone's day.
