This is such a shock and so sad. Josh was so amazingly sweet and down to earth. I think everybody that knew him would agree that he was so genuine and fun to talk to about hunting, fishing and really just about anything. Thoughts to the family... I'll bet it is just absolutely beautiful where he is now .
