May Josh’s memory be a blessing, I remember him from preschool at Kinderland and we reconnected for a brief moment of time in our adulthood. He was always such a kind and bright light. So very sorry for this immense loss.

We have such fond memories of our family being together at wonderful Simchas. Josh was an amazing person with a zest for life. His "Simchas Hachayim" was contagious, and he accomplished more than many men his age, which was undoubtably due to your encouragement and love. You left him a legacy that will live on in all the other "special needs".kids who will have more fulfilled lives because of your influence.

Dear Joyce & Baruch
Our hearts are broken for you and your family.
Josh's 1000 watt smile and his never-failing high five as well as his drawl-ey "Helllooo, Missus Brandesss!", will remain with me forever. I feel that our Boruch has lost a "brother" and we have lost a dear and beloved friend. Words fail...
