Josias was a wonderful young man and a great and dear friend to our son, Ethan. He was always showing through his actions how he could help others.

Noel, Judy and Adriana: Words cannot express our deepest sympathy. During this storm we pray that the Lord would take hold of you and keep you at peace and comfort your hearts. Josias has left a huge impact on everyone that knew him. He truly was a blessing and a warrior for the Lord. We have that blessed assurance that we will see him again. So, this is not good bye, it is: “Until we meet again” We love you dearly. God bless

Our Hope Endures…Dear Rodriguez family, We mourn deeply with you all at the loss of your amazing and lovely son. We are a TOL family and our daughter graduate with Josias. If I had to choose the Daniel award recipient, I would have picked him so what a great choice. He showed the joy of the Lord and the love of Christ to all who encountered him. Now he is showing that the directly to our savior. God bless you all and we will fervently pray for God’s peace and comfort for your dear family. Love, The Hackshaw family
