    I will always remember Josh, he was a great friend of my son Justin Knighten, there friendship began in high school and shared many good times. I could always count on Josh when I needed a good plumber. All I had to do was call, that is the Josh I will remember. Great personality, and a smile that you don’t forget. I know he loved his wife Nicole, children and family. My prayers go out to his loved ones, and those who had the pleasure of knowing Josh. For his parents, there are no words to lessen the hurt and pain of losing a child. It has been a year since I lost my oldest son and I miss him dearly. To live in the heart of those we love is not to die. He will forever be in your hearts.
