    The Bread of Life Pentecostal Apostolic Church (St. Louis, MO) family offer our sincere condolences to the family and fiends of Josh. To Tabitha, Jacub, James and Madeline, our hearts break as we share in the pain you feel in the loss of your husband, father and son. We have been praying for you all every since we learned of Josh’s sickness. As pastor of Bread of Life, I would like to personally thank you for allowing me to share the life and struggles of Josh. I will cherish the many stories shared with me by Josh and James. Some were funny and others were simply inspiring. Remember, Jesus gave us permission to morn when He said, “Blessed are they that morn for they shall be comforted.”

    With much love and continued pray,

    Pastor Battle and The Bread of Life Family

    We are so sorry for your loss. We didn’t know Josh was ill. Our hearts go out to the family.
    I remember the first time I met Josh, he’d just got a big ol’ buck and I asked if he needed help draging it out of the woods! I know you all have fond memories, he was a good kid.
    Our prayers are with you all!

    Throughout school, Josh was always so sweet and kind. He always had a smile on his face. I can’t imagine that he ever changed. My thoughts and prayers are with you, his family. May you find peace in knowing that Josh left a wonderful impression on the world.

    It’s been almost three years since we lost Josh to the big “C” word nobody likes to hear. We still miss and love him a lot even though he is not here with us physically but he will always be with us in our hearts. Had a really strange thing happen yesterday, 24 March 2015, just like the day of his funeral. It brought back many memories. There was lightning, a crack of thunder, rain, then two beautiful rainbows next to each other with the little breeze to move the wind chime just enough to give a soft chime. WE LOVE YOU JOSH! You will never be forgotten. Thanks for giving a helping hand to every one and gently touching the heart and souls of others. Love you cuz.
