If you would like to make a charitable contribution, Joshua admired and assisted with the work of Habitat for Humanity, habitat.org.

“If I should die and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep. For my sake, turn again to life and smile, nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do something to comfort weaker hearts than thine. Complete those dear unfinished tasks of mine, and I perchance may therein comfort you.”

— Mary Lee Price
