Joshua's mom has selected Josh's birthday, December 17, as the date for a live Virtual Memorial, which will feature highlights from the in-person event and allow participation over Zoom. The event begins at 7 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. Please pass along this link to friends of Joshua who may be at distance or otherwise unable to attend the in-person event. The password is Joshua. They can join from any computing device using the link (you do not have to download Zoom, you can join from your browser) or they can join by telephone for audio only, but we recommend a full connection with video.
