    Josh- I'm thinking about you today, as always. I know you're still around, watching everything, taking notes, and writing songs. Thanks for everything over the years. Your pal- MW

    Odd how I found this little spot on the web. I decided to listen to Three Strange Days, and decided to do a wiki search on the band. My friend pointed out the date. January 19th. Thanks for the tunes Josh. Rest in peace.

    Oh Josh, A candle is burning for you tonight. To say I miss you is trivial. But on the other hand, Danny and I are off to Alta for skiing. I'll remember forever our trip out there, and when going down the slopes I'll sing lots of songs for you. Violets Forever, Henry

    Blowing kisses to the clouds in your honor. Chase and Max put dragon fly stickers on the window this morning. How apropos. Your spirit warms us Josh, on such a snowy winter day. Come visit when ever the magic carpet swings by. We send loads of positive energy to you and your family.

    Hey Josh...9 years of missing you but also keeping your spirit alive inside me. Amazing the joy you've brought to the world, and continue to bring...I love it when new people discover your music, and of course when people who have always loved it continue to find pleasure, sustenance, compassion, there. Give Mommy and Nanny big hugs for me. There's someone who's just come over to your world who you'd love to know...Jay Kaplan...kind and sweet and funny and creative and only 28. He took immense pleasure in life like you. I hope you make each other laugh. I know how pleased you must be about tomorrow's inauguration...what a turn the country has taken! I'm off to visit your earthly resting place. I Love you, Laura

    9 years. That's incredible. Thinking of you and the positive influence your work had on me as an adolescent.

    Nine years... dates... anniversaries... my last conversation with you was December 28, 1999. It feels at both so recent... and so distant... as always, I am thinking of you... missing you... but most of all remembering your smile, your warmth... and how special you are... on this day and every day Joshua. Playing "Paint The Tree Green" and "Deer In The Headlights" right now... TM

    9 years? It just doesn't seem right that time can pass so quickly. I've been listening to Josh and School Of Fish a LOT this past couple of weeks and the music has the same effect on me every single time. If i'm feeling down it brings me right back up without fail. Josh had THE greatest voice in rock music in my opinion and although we could have had so much more beautiful music from him i'm just grateful I have the music he created in my collection. So I was really excited this week to hear from Gil Gilbert who directed the video for School Of Fish's King Of The Dollar. I'd never seen this video and it brought back so many memories because it was THIS song that really got me excited to see School Of Fish and I was lucky enough to see them only a week later opening for Crowded House in Leeds, UK. To add to that excitement I met Josh and Michael that day and stayed in touch ever since. Two of the nicest people I have ever met.......

    A moment ago, while in my kitchen talking to my brother, our conversation was interrupted by the loud squawking of birds outside. One swooshed by the window and I thought it was the red-tailed hawk who likes to hang in our tall trees. My brother and I looked out the window as the noise got louder and louder. Within a minute, there were hundreds of crows in every tree, flying in and out of the branches and all of them so loud. I couldn't help but put on my coat and go outside to sit in lawn and listen and watch. Marilyn, we talked of crows an awful lot and Josh's connection to them. Was that your way of saying Happy Birthday to me? I'm not sure how else to explain that wave of energy that warmed me from head to toe. With much love, Bridgette

    I was cleaning a closet last night looking for something and happened across a box of CD's that I had stored so the kids wouldn't get into them. Some of my personal favorites, the ones that make you remember exactly what you were doing and where you were when you last listened to it. In that box was, "Spirit Touches Ground". I immediately put it on and my daughter asked, "Dad, what are you listening to?" I explained the history of the CD and it reminded me that the last time I listened to it, I was painting her room in preparation for her birth. I sat down on the couch and she sat on my lap. We listened to the whole CD, even past her bedtime. Josh you were too cool for this world, I just wanted to say thanks for another unforgettable moment that your music gave me! Peace, Jr.

    Happy 2009 everyone. I'm hoping to give the site a bit of a facelift this year. Nothing too radical, just a little freshen up :-) Dene
