    A few months ago I met Kelly Leonard through a mutual friend. Kelly and I then became friends. We are not close friends yet but I felt compelled to attend the services of her lost beloved brother and bring my comfort and condolences. Imagine my surprise when I found out we share the same name ( King ), and he looks like many members of my king relatives ( he has the King eyes ), I have just recently lost my father ( Tom King- God rest his soul ) and I still grieve, I was very moved by everyone’s heartfelt loss and sadness, yet inspired by their testimonies of their fond memories of Josh. I was meant to attend this service for it has built me up spiritually, which I sorely need, and I was deeply moved by the whole ceremony. Josh obviously touched everyone in a positive manner while he was here on this earth, and now even in death he touched me in that same way, what an amazing man he must have been, and still is, I look forward to meeting him someday, as do we all. And we will most certainly do that. Thank you Josh, thank you Kelly, and thank you Amanda, and most of all, I thank God for allowing me to enjoy the things I enjoy in life and I am grateful to him for everything spiritual that I experience that builds me up and inspires me to be a better man, such as my experience at his memorial service tonight. May God bless and comfort all of you, friends family and acquaintances alike, that had the privilege of knowing and loving Josh while he walked amongst us, you will all see and reunite with him again someday.
