Cindy Graham

I am so sorry for your loss. I am the mother of Jennifer Chesnuttt who was a close friend of Sofia and knew Josh. I am in continuous contact with Sofia at this time, which is how I knew of the passing of Joshua. Again, please accept my sincerest condolences. Unfortunately, I am not able to go to the funeral home today because I would still be at work at 4pm - though I really wanted to be there. Marie - we have not met, but I am so sorry for the loss of your son. Vanessa and Mia - so sorry for the loss of your brother. Julia, again sorry for the loss of your nephew. My prayers are with the family at this time.

My deepest condolences to the family. Josh was an amazing soul who touched many lives. He was an honest and blunt person but it always came from the heart. His aunt and uncle did an amazing job raising him to be the kind-hearted, helpful, and just all around inspirational person he was. He could light up a room with his presence. He was a great friend and he is missed so much. I'm thankful for the memories that I have with him over the past 12 years.
