  1. Alley

    My baby brother Joshie, you were the bestest friend I ever had, the greatest uncle to all my girls, they looked up so you much. I’m gunna miss seeing you every day, your small sarcastic comments, and picking at me. Texting just food to let you know dinner is done, waking up late on Saturday morning to you cooking the girls breakfast so I could sleep in. You were and always will be the greatest person I’ve ever known. The way you would bend over backwards for me and Nathan at the drop of a hat was amazing. Mom said it perfect as much as you were a mommas boy, you were an Alley’s boy as well, with that being said yes you were my brother and we grew up together, but you were the son that me and Nathan never had. I’m going to miss you soo much my basement troll, all I have are your pictures and our memories, and boy are those the greatest memories I cherish, if only you could see how bright you made everyone’s lives around you, take care of my baby for me, until we meet again I love you.

  2. Mom

    We loved you most,
    From little baby toes to a button nose,
    Crayon stick pictures, hockey sticks and soccer uniforms,

    We loved you most,
    Threw your teens to forge a path
    Dirt bikes, brother sister fights and Call of Duty trick shots,
    The Color blue, puppy cuddles, whole pumpkin pies and banana loaves,

    A fine young man you have become, we loved you most,
    Twisting wrenches, hunting, fishing, and a rumbling truck.

    Now learning but also teaching, a son, a nephew, an uncle, a cousin and a friend, you loved us most.

    We will take with us the memories of your humour, your smile and your laugh always. Thank you for loving us, until we meet again.
