May 5th, 2012 - the hardest and most painful day of my life.
Screen shot of the post from Josh's Mom:
Josh was a very dear and special friend to me. When I found out he was gone, it didn't feel real, neither did the screams that came from my heart and escaped through my mouth.
He changed my life in so many ways.
One of the most impactful memories I had of him, is once when we were at a large conference together, and I said something rather nonchalantly, and Josh was the only one who noticed I was hurting. He took me aside, looked me in the eye and took my hands in his. Then he asked me what was wrong and told me to let him know if there was anything he could do and that he was praying for me. Then he sent me a mile long email that touched me in ways no email ever has.
How I desire to be in heaven with him! I can't wait for the day when that happens.
He lived a godly testimony in his life, touching so many others... and now, even though he's with Jesus, he's still touching lives.
This is a post he made a month ago, how much more it means now! He truly died well.
Joshua S. Eddy, thank you for living out your life as a testimony that won't soon be forgotten.
You were truly one of the most remarkable and godly young men I have ever known.
Thank you for the impact you have had on my life in your encouragement
and willingness to always be there. Thank you for seeking Christ in
You changed my life and the lives of many others in your
lifetime. And even though you're with Jesus now, you're still changing
See you in heaven-I can't wait!
Your friend, forever,
