Due to Chris being stationed in Va for years, I only got to see you a few times. However, you would always send me a message or shoot me a call just to make sure I was doing okay. I have never met someone more loving, caring, funny, and with a heart of gold. You are free from all your pain and struggles. Heaven gained an incredible angel. Fly high and look after everyone.

Joshua,

You gave me so much life when I would visit and perform over there. I will never forget the time that I stayed at your house and you tried to freak me out about a lil kid hiding in your closet. Of course, I slept facing the closet. You made me laugh, smile and now cry. You never met a stranger and your treated everyone the same. You was more than just a friend to me, you treat me like family. You now go sing in heaven as you have a voice of an angel. To Joshua's family, you lean on me and others for the love that you will need as Joshua showed me and others the love. You are in my heart and soul forever. Much love Bradley Morgan aka LaDreama Funn

I had the pleasure of working with Josh during QCT’s run of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Josh balanced the charisma, energy and humor he brought to the stage, with the determination, humility and sensitivity he brought to rehearsals. All who were involved with that show are in Josh’s debt, for the many contributions he made.

Josh was kind and good, and he will be sorely missed.

With love and respect, I extend sincere condolences to his family and friends during this heartbreaking time.
