    Gina, Dominic and Gianna,
    Although I did not know Josh personally, I got to know him through the MRF website as we battled together. Josh was an extraordinary human being who while fighting for his own life always showed amazing compassion for others. He is fondly remembered by many. “A hui ho” Josh

    Truly sorry to hear about his passing. Josh was truly a good friend of mine growing up as our history is Schaffer all the way through Willowbrook including Jefferson. I didn’t even know he was sick so this is a shock. I knew of Dennis and met in passing and knew Mike as I believe he’s just a year younger. I don’t have the words for you guys but you will all be in my thoughts and prayers…deepest sympathy for such a great loss…

    My heart goes out to Gina and the Faillo family and friends of Josh in your time of sorrow. I know Josh has left you with many precious memories from his 46 short but full years with us. When death robs us of someone we love very much, it causes much sadness and grief. Our loving heavenly Father, “Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: “And no resident will say “I am sick,” ever again. Revelations 21: 4 says: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to me contact me at my email address:

    I pray it will do your heart good to please watch this beautiful video (song 144) entitled “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize”
