Dear Hamman Family, 
I am so sorry to learn of your loss.  Josh was a good friend of my son, James, and I recall what great times they had together.  In fact, I recall James saying many times how much he admired Josh's many talents.  I hope that these reflections may offer you some comfort during this difficult time.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Bonnie, Mike and Jennifer,

Our family is so saddened to learn of Josh's passing. He was like a part of our family when he and Nathan were kids. Josh was a bright, artistic young man, and I was always impressed by his wonderful manners and respect for others.

Our prayers for comfort and peace are with you.

It's hard to find the right words when something this sad happens. Josh was a good kid, kind, funny, and he will be missed. Good times were had when he was around.

Bonita & Mike-

I worked with your son and he was a very down to earth person and my prayers are with you and your family.
I was saddened to read of Josh's passing.  I remember a bright, artistic fourth grader sitting in my classroom.  He had a wonderful sense of humor and a respect for learning.  My thoughts are with you at this time.

Michael and Bonita:

Although I did not know Joshua personally, I remember you speaking highly of him as a child, seeing him ride his bike and just being a boy full of energy.  Reflect on the good memories.

When a child dies, it is particularly hard for the mother. The Bible acknowledges the bitter grief that a mother can feel. (2 Kings 4:27) Of course, it is also difficult for the bereaved father as well. O that I might have died, I myself, instead of you, lamented King David when his son Absalom died.2 Samuel 18:33.

Have confidence in the resurrection The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out (John 5:28, 29) and your sorrow will not be unrelenting. The Bible promises that he himself will sustain you.Psalm 55:22.

Nancy Wickard

 So very sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
