    My heart goes out to Josh’s family, and as hard as I’m sure it is to breathe right now, death ends a life but not a relationship. He will always be with you. Sending thoughts and prayers your way. Please know I’m here if you need anything.

    I regret to have let so many years pass without seeing you again my old friend. Memories of us when we were kids, and the fun times we had as adults. You and Jacob were members of our extended family. It has never changed. But as life moves on so do we. Forever in our memories and always in our hearts. I’ll miss you Froggie 🐸 , wish there were just a bit more time.

    Still processing this right now and it will take some time for me to accept this loss. Merde! How the days slip us by. We weren’t close for many years, but there was no love lost in my heart. Frog was a really fun guy on the surface. Good for laughs…but there was wisdom and raw talent for prose behind that jester’s grin. Growing up, I never thought we would ever end up amounting to much in the traditional sense. I was quite wrong as most lost boys prove through the years. Frog was just the sort of guy you couldn’t resist loving or hating at any given moment. He had a charisma and charm about him that could not be denied. So many memories, not all for the telling. I am glad his spirit lives on in the son he loved with every fiber of his being. Farewell on your journey to the hereafter my friend. In accordance with our spirited youth, I trust some of the boys will join me in pouring out a little liquor for our homie who has passed on. Until we meet again…
