I know you don&t know me , but I had to write to you to let you know there are other people out here who know what your going through. I have buried 2 children one in 81 and one in 2004 . It is never easy to let go I know and in a way you never do cause you will hold them in your heart for your life time till you meet again. God has a purpose for us all here . As I read the news paper this morning Josh seemed to do his job here very good he made people smile and laugh and when they left they felt good. That is a rare gift to have where you can touch someones heart and make their world just a little better. And he&s still doing it like me this morning when I read his story it brought a smile to my face and touched my heart and I never met him which is a great loss cause I know I would have loved him too!
I lost my husband to cancer 15 months ago . It is an a tragic thing to go through, I am so sorry for your loss and my heart hurts for you. If you ever just need to talk feel free to contact me. May the Lord keep and bless you during this time.

Dear Turner Family,

I just learned of Josh&s passing; I am so very sorry.

Josh was a special guy that I was lucky to know through Kidney Camp. I will always remember him. He added alot of merriment with his love of his puppets and especially his imitation of Pee Wee Herman that he did at the camp variety show.

At camp, Josh was sweet, kind, and honest- an all around good nature. If he was feeling under the weather, you wouldn&t know it because he never complained. Whenever I&d ask him how he was doing he&d say ""ok"" and give a little smile.

I am so glad he got to go to camp last year. At the Fever game, Josh really cut loose whooping and cheering like I&d never seen him do before. He had fun!!!

The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana will be putting together a DVD of the 2011 campers and activities and we will be sure to send you a copy.

Bless all of you for giving Josh a family and being so supportive of his needs.

Dear Beth and Pete,
I&m so sorry to hear of Josh&s passing. I remember the excitment you both exhibited when he came to your home around Christmas time many years ago. You both gave unselfishly through the years to a little guy who didn&t have a chance until you came into his life. Thinking of you and asking God to give you His peace and comfort this day.
Blessings, Vicki
