    It has been far too long my friend. Seven years, but it feels like ten times that. I woke up this morning thinking about the time we got lost in New Jersey for two hours. Such a funny night, with Uncle Steve in tow. Wow, seems like ages ago. Even though I am sad today, and I miss your physical being, I often feel your presence in many beautiful ways. I am so very grateful for that. Thank you my love, for continuing to be a glorious light in my life. I miss you and your sweet smile. Good night, my friend. I love you. Give mom a big hug for me. xo

    Been too long, bro. Too long. Had a great b-fast w/ Sam, Laura and Chad. Gotta be honest, it's been rough down here...and good to, if I am being straight with myself. I need some strength from you, kid. Theresa is having a wee surgery on Monday and my sister has to have a delicate operation on an aneurysm near her (perhaps in ) her brain. Just doin' what I can to keep everyone's fear at bay - wish you were here to watch "The Secret" with me - ah, but you lived it, didn't you? So much more to say...we need you here budy. HEY WEBSITE! Love to Gia and Dan's family - Congrats Lindsey Lipton!! Love you Henry - Tommy - David A. and DENE. Thanks for it all...Peace In, War out!! Jeff

    Josh, I woke up this morning and immediately thought of you... I find myself becoming more & more astonished with how quickly time passes and yet the connection I feel with you never seems to fade. I can't tell you how many times during the course of the past seven years that I have thought of you, and how those thoughts always bring warmth to my heart & soul. I miss you. We all miss you. Yet through the melancholy moments, the is always a strong sense of gratitude and thanks for what you have given to us. I am thinking of you now, with that kind smile on your face. Much love, TOMMY

    Hi Josh...it's been 7 years since we've been on this earth together...I know mom's there with you now...I'm glad you have each other but I miss you both constantly, yet feel so connected to you both constantly as well. I love you both forever and ever. Give Nanny a big hug for me. Laura Dene...I was so touched to see the new intro to the site with all the beautiful photos, and "Waiting To Be". I love that song too, and it's a pleasure to be surprised by something new. You have created a place on earth for me, and for all the people who love Josh to go and visit him, to spend time in his company, and also to hear from each other. You have given us all an incredible gift. My mom would go to the site every day, it was so important to her. I go to the site most days myself. There's a great sense of comfort in that. I'm truly grateful to you for what you've done, and are continuing to do. With love and best wishes to you and your family, Laura

    Hey Josh. Well, it's the 19th January on this side of the pond so I just want to type a quick note. Hope you like the new intro I made for the site, I picked 'Waiting To Be' because it's one of my all time faves. I love that song. I thought about giving the site a makeover but know how much you liked that groovy blue background so I think it should stay. I was just looking through some old e-mails and saw this from 19th December 1999 "Dene, ok so I send the email to you, take pain pills for my back and pass out. I wake up the next morning and it's like Christmas, the web site is filling the stockings and the tree is fully stocked. Well Santa thank you, I was very happy and very impressed. Thank you for comming through in such a big way again." well, it was always a pleasure, you never took advantage and was always so very grateful when I had put some new stuff together. So thank YOU! I was in Amsterdam with Michael in the Summer, he had Pizza Pancakes!! Sweet pancakes with cheese and pizza toppings! tasted good, i'm going to have some this Saturday when i'm over there again. I'll pancake toast to you my friend. Anyway, I miss you but will always be grateful for the fact that I met so many wonderful people through you. Your Mom was very very special and she is so missed. I love getting my New Years card from Laura every year and the occasional message from George. OK, I need some sleep, i'll be listening to Deer In The Headlights on my iPod while I doze off. Bye for now. Dene x

    Last night I went to an art opening at the Billy Shire Gallery in Los Angeles of work by David Anderle. The paintings are wonderful...compelling insightful portraits and lush landscapes, but the reason I'm writing about it here is that there are 2 paintings of JOSH! David Anderle is the legendary A&R executive who signed Josh to A&M records. When he left A&M he decided to pursue his lifelong dream to paint fulltime. He felt so connected to Josh that he was inspired to paint him twice. You can type in these URLs to see the paintings: billyshirefinearts.com/07Anderle/dragonfly.html and billyshirefinearts.com/ 07Anderle/josh.html. Or, even better, you can go to the gallery and see them in person! I'm glad you're visiting this site! Josh's sister Laura
