John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Josh; Your memorial bench sits in front of the Minnesota State Fair Police Department during the MN state fair for all fairgoers to see. We have our morning coffee with other officers with you. You are not forgotten!

Hey Josh, Thanks for the memories. I had fun working side by side with you. It's so unreal, how life flies by...

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.

The St Paul to the Wall benefit was a success! Your brothers and sisters in blue will be in DC to support your family and to honor you. You would have been so proud of all the people who worked so hard to make the benefit a success. The room was filled with love and lots of Josh stories. You are missed!!!

The planning has started for "St. Paul to the Wall". We will be in DC to honor you and support your family. You are missed. When I cover the afternoon shift I think of the times you would stop by and visit. It's a difficult shift for me to cover now.

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this officer. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.

While many other career choices were certainly available, this officer chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”

Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will watch over your family and continue the Watch!
