  • One of the few people on this earth I could truly call a best friend Josh Walsh has sadly succumbed to his illness after some time in the hospital. Josh was an amazing person and had the potential to lead an amazing life. It’s sad to see how cruel this world can be to someone. It’s especially cruel to see how other human beings can treat each other… so poorly. It makes my heart hurt. If anybody can help in any way, big or small, you’d be doing a huge service for Josh & his family. I have a lot to say but I will keep it short. If you contribute Thank you. And Josh Walsh I love you buddy. You know I’ve never judged you, and vice versa, that’s what made us the great friends we were. On top of that not many people on this Earth truly have any empathy, compassion, & genuine kindness in their hearts. It’s something I’m noticing more & more as I get older. The world is cold… and all I want for anybody and everybody is for them to find happiness & love. I wish everybody felt the same way as me but that’s not life… I guess this is…. long after all the childish high school games were over. I’ll never forget the memories we made… never. Damn. This one hurts buddy. It hurts to much. I just hope you’ve found peace. I love you brother.

  • Thinking of Jax and his family during this difficult time.
