Hey Josh, I stopped by tonight and wanted to share a few thoughts. I've been thinking about you a lot recently and even came upon an old Ponies football picture of you a couple days ago. It made me think of how much vigor and passion you had. I wish we could have known each other more and gotten the chance to work together. Last year at the LEMA service I read your name after our post. It meant the world to me to honor you and your family by doing that. I know it wasn't a random selection, so I guess I want to thank you for allowing me to do that. Please watch over our brothers and sisters down here.
