    Hi Josh, I was thinking of ya. I've never written here before, always chosen to remember you in my own, less-public way. But my God, I am so touched that people -- friends and family, acquaintances, and fans -- are still writing in, still sending thoughts and memories. I know there's already a totem pole and a concert in your honor, but I think that this forum is the most moving tribute. So, I've started playing the banjo. I'm trying to see if any of your musical talent has rubbed off on me. So far I'm not so sure, but maybe you could give me some musical mojo to help me out. Aaron is flying down today to spend the weekend with me in DC, and I guess I came the the site, thinking of what it's like to be an older brother. I want to call you to find out. Man, I wish I could. I love you Josh, and miss you a whole hell of a lot. love, Sasha, your brother ps. I'm still working out the details for our all-night cereal restaurant.

    Wow! I know its been a while, but I just found out that Josh died. Im really sorry to all his fans, friends, and family. Anyways, all I wanted to say is, about 6-7 years ago I saw Josh when he came to Kansas City with Tori Amos and he was amazing! All I have is the Nature Boy cd, but Ive been making everyone I meet listen to it, and they all love it! He was amazing and Im sure everyone misses him. Blessed Be and Godspeed.

    Hey, this is a message for Josh's mom or sister. I just read "The Boy Who Planted the World" and it was on my mind most of the day. When I got to soccer practice (I coach kids from ages 4-6), I told a couple of my kids the story and the loved it! At school today, I was talking to a friend about it and we thought it'd be really groovy to make it into a children's book as part of the senior gift to the elementary school (my school is K-12) because we've spent a good chunk of our high school careers reading to the kids. I wanted y'alls' permission, so if you could e-mail me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), that'd be great. Thanks! -Candy J.

    Listening to a tape a close person we both know made for me; with your music on it.. Always reminds me of some amazing times.... Thanks.... I won an award for this poem I wrote to you (glad you got to read it and the "Road of Life keeps turning brother)... My friend Josh, The road of life winds through many curves Mine keeps on turning, does it ever straighten out In circles and circles, it’s circles for now Can I keep spinning, is there any way out I dream of the days where my road rides so smooth The wind keeps me cool and the sun warms my soul My days are ahead though I’ll face them right now Take a hold of the wheel, cause I’m driving through Starting to speed, feels like I’m slippin’ Grasp my desire, feels like I’m trippin’ Wait, my wheels are still on the ground What I have lost, I now have found Open my eyes and what do I see My life will straighten in front of me I always go forward, my path is so straight Don’t worry my friend, your life will be great! Your friend Brian …….

    Hi, my brother has had the School of Fish albums knocking around for years and i have been listening to them at work, just found out now that Josh died. Such a shame, especially seeing what a joke the music scene is these days. I love punchy guitar albums with great songs behind them and three strange days etc.. really get me rocking. cheers rick
