    Dear Josh, I'm thinking of you today, and most everyday I send a thought your way, since our little Kaya reminds me constantly of you. I know somewhere in her little dog brain she remembers you too. Your sweet presence in our lives still remains somehow, even after ten years. I love you, and your Kaya sends you a doggie kiss.

    Josh, as this day has approached us I have been remembering so much of our friendship. I have tears in my eyes and a smile on my face. You taught me so much when you were here and you continue to teach me so much. I love you more than words can say. I remember the first time I met you. I knew you would be a special person in my life. When you stayed with me after you came back from Boston; I still have the notes you left me each morning as we went on with our days. I also remember the last time I saw you in the hospital. There is so much more I wish I said but I didn't know it would have been the last time I'd see you. I wonder if people know about what you told me that day. I burned the last of the sage you brought me back from a trip you went on when I visited you last. I hope you got to enjoy it. Last night my husband gave me a picture frame with a picture of a dragonfly flying into the sunset with the words I always say "every day you're born every night you die let the dragonfly come and give you a ride". He knows how much you mean to me and my son will also. There has been so much growth, heartache, learning that has happened in the last 10 years but it seems like we were sitting at Dupars laughing together yesterday. I love you always. Thank you with all my heart for sharing time with me.

    JCF- I'm drinking a glass of red wine and listening to all the old music. It was an honor to be your friend and share such great times with you. You inspire me, still. -Michael

    Thinking of my sweet friend Josh Clayton-Felt today. A brilliant musician and one of the loveliest human beings I had ever met. Josh, you wouldn't believe how often I've thought of you through the years and continue to listen to your music. Your positive vibes and pure heart are sorely missed.

    Josh, Your dear family, kind friends, and supportive community have taught me so much about life, loss, patience and grace. I am in awe of these lessons as I move through my own journey. Thank you for these gift. Sarah

    I still can't believe it has been 10 years since you moved onto the next plane. I was just talking with someone about you. It was really nice, but quite hard at the same time. I miss you so much. Love you, Carolyn/Money Penny

    Dear Joshie.... 10 years it's been since we lost you, but for me it seems like you have never left us. Your spirit, music and voice are with us every day. Not a day passes that I don't give thanks for having met you that special night at Sonoma State in 1991. You and your family are constantly in my prayers, and I will never forget you. I had a great surf session in Malibu last weekend and I think you had something to do with it. Great waves, beautiful skies, and my JCF rockin' all the way to the beach! Thank you for everything Josh. You are in my mind and in my heart every day of my life. Rest easy brother.... Shay G.

    I became a fan of Josh's while attending UMass in the early '90s; I will never forget when my favorite professor, John Clayton, mentioned that Josh was his son. I recently learned about his loss and am profoundly saddened. My condolences to the family; I am heartened that you still have his music, a part of his soul that continues to live on.

    Dear Josh...I've missed you every day of these last 10 years...sometimes I imagine what it would be like to have you here now, dropping by each others houses and sharing our lives...never realizing how truly amazing something so normal could be. I'll be having a pancake breakfast and visiting you today. Love Laura

    Thinking of you today Josh. How on Earth could I ever thank you for sharing your spiritual insight, wisdom and talent with the world? It is obvious you have reached, touched, inspired, uplifted and encouraged so many of us. Though I never had the honor of knowing you, I still feel I've lost something special. See you in the next dream....

    Dear, dear Josh Although ten years has passed, the missing you has not. Starting around mid December I begin my thinking and missing period. I miss you. BUT, Barbara and I have crows here in Croton (Crow Town?). A large Dragon Fly is attached to a tree outside. Your music is always here; so is you smiling face, and I keep both Laura and George close to my heart. I'm off to ski at Alta, I'm sure I'll find you there. Henry

    Ten years have passed in the blink of an eye. Yesterday we were laughing. You were smiling and being the best friend a man could have. This world needs people like you and you have inspired many to be their caring best. Ten years passed in the blink of an eye, and the thirty-two years before that lingered just long enough for me to never forget you. You were a friend like not many can be, and an artist of unwavering talent. Josh Clayton-Felt, I miss you. - Your old friend, Jeff.

    I was a huge fan of School Of Fish in college. Their debut album came out my junior year of college in 1991 along with many other great power pop bands like Material Issue. I learned Josh had passed away years ago, but I am now re-discovering some of the lost music from my college years and School Of Fish is squarely in my Top 10 of all time favorite college-era power pop music. As a man of faith, Jesus taught us that we should always pray for those that have gone before us so that someone will pray for us after we are gone. And so I pray for you Josh and pray that you are free in heaven. God Bless. Amen.

    As a teen I listened to School of Fish over and over. Josh's voice was amazing. Out total curiosity I looked him up on Wiki and I landed here. I actually shed a tear...not very manly for a 36 year old to cry, but the shock of just finding out about Josh's tragic death and the video from Goodmorning America was too much for me to take. To the family....I am sorry, the loss of a loved one never easy.
