I can honestly say that Josh was one of the nicest and most polite person I've ever met. Always smiling and put those around him in a better mood. I worked with Josh at Vitatoe. We were always joking around with each other. There needs to be a lot more "Josh's" in this world. God bless the broken hearted, He will be missed greatly!!!
