    I feel odd writing this as I didn't know Josh as an adult. Josh and I went to high school together and while we were not super close we did spend time together talking and hanging-out. What I remember most was his way of walking, or skipping as I remember it; he always wore a backpack over both shoulders and he would skip in front as he looked back to talk with me. He always had a grin. After all of these years I came across information of his passing and I wanted his friends and family to know that he touched so many others in life, even if only peripherally, and truly made a difference.

    they played "three strange days" earlier on the radio. always loved that song. i CRANKED it up because i was totally feeling bad and it made me feel so much better to listen to it LOUD. i didn't have enough of it and went to youtube to listen to it a couple more times. i was curious about the band, where are they now, was totally saddened to read josh died. terrible. i've been feeling very badly the past few days, like REALLY badly, listening to "three strange days" made me think it would be not a good idea to check out, better stick around and try to get through this. thanks josh. (was quite surprised to see it's the anniversary of josh's death.)

    Dear Josh, After nine years it's hardly any easier, losing you. Tonight and tomorrow is your yahrzeit--the anniversary of your dying--in the Hebrew calendar, and tomorrow I'll offer a d'var Torah, a Torah talk, in your honor, and I'll light a candle and say Kaddish. I remember when you came with me to synagogue. As I grow older and closer to dying, I grow closer to you, where you are now. I love you, dear son. Dad
