Upon returning home from vacation, I was saddened to read Joshua's obit in the paper. He was a sweet little boy that I had the privilege of being his teacher. I remember how proud his mommy was of him. His little face didn't change over the years... except for the beard! May God cradle you in his comforting and loving arms until the day you are united in Heaven ❤️!

My condolences to the Carner families. I'm so sorry to hear about the untimely loss of dear Josh. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
