We are, Joshua, for you are.
Tenaciously creative and equally inquisitive. Open arms and open hearted. Rough hands that soothed so many. Joy maker. Steward of passion and compassion.
A beautiful smile and bold words spoken. An artist and physicist. Composer and skater. Rugged and tender. Intellect and craftsman. Tough and gritty.
A man and a boy in that fragile age.
God’s child. My child. Unconditionally loved others. God’s child. Your child. Unconditionally loved.
Your brother. Your grandson. Your nephew. Your friend. Your boyfriend. Your student.
God’s brother. God’s grandson. God’s nephew. God’s boyfriend. God’s friend. God’s student.
A poet. Unconditionally loved. Joshua. We are, you are, Joshua, beautiful, beautiful Joshua.
