In Loving Memory of Brian's Cousin Joshua!


Hi all,

We found out Saturday that Brian's 8 year old cousin Joshua passed away. I never got to meet him, but the stories that Brian and his folks would tell me about this special little boy TOUCHED my heart.
Please say a little prayer for Joshua's parents, Tony (Sue's brother) and his wife Juanita as they are going through this difficult time!!

Hugs,
Julie :):):)
