    Beverly, I was looking for you on the Internet and came across this. My heart goes out to you and I am deeply sorrowed by your loss. Words seem trivial and do not come easily. Cameron and I have wonderful memories of Josh... Just know that you, Beverly, were a good mother to him and so many!!! I have many memories of how you were there for me, when no one else would be. You were just on my heart so heavily this weekend and I wanted to try and find you to thank you! I pray that you get this and that you might feel led to call me. 919.387.3605 Love you!!!

    We will remember Joshua from Ruby Tuesday Mayfaire. He always greeted us with a smile whenever we came in. His smiles and dedication to just being nice to people in general will be remembered a long time. We were very sad to read about his passing. He shared with us at the restaurant about his faith in God. He was a fine young man.
