Whoa, this is strange. Doesnt feel real tbh, you were always a person I've had in my mind as someone who would be around forever. To do something wild and possibly life changing. Just so so very strange that you no longer exist on earth here anymore. At least in a physical form... I'm at a loss for words. I dont know what to say but for some reason I think I should start with my first encounter with you. I started my first year at franklin elementary for 6th grade, my assigned seat was at a table you were also seated in. There are two conversations I remember having with you. 1) the video game Rambo 3. 2) the song paralyzer- finger eleven for some odd reason. I remember these two conversations so distinctly because I was a shy kid in grade school especially this year, josh apparently was an outcast but one who definitely wasn't afraid to stand out. When no one else spoke to me that first day of school, Josh did. I met a friend. (: of course years later we crossed paths again. He was the best friend of my boyfriend at the time.... (honestly can't even begin to understand the pain Zack is going through at this time... I pray he's holding up) these we're 2 crazy leather jacket wearing punks on their own agenda. I enjoyed watching them together that one summer. You could tell they really cared for one and other and were literally having the times of their lives. I was a major cunt at the end of this summer, unfortunately. But I still need to make it a point that Josh was a trend setter, a person people wanted to be like, be around, be influenced by. He was creative, fun, and overall had amazing vibes. I wish I had been able to tell him this. I wish I'd done and said things differently. But that's what's crazy about lives.... they are given quite quickly but taken from us even quicker. Joshua Russo...RIP. I swear, you will always be remembered.

I'll never forget all the times we had in high school. Being cool, lunch hour being lit, and most of all the countless hours playing Bad Co 2. You were a great friend to have around and I wish we would've continued hanging out more after high school. You'll be missed brother. Hang loose. -Mitch

Josh, words cannot describe how much you will be missed. You made such an impact on everyone you met, and everything you came into contact with. The world lost a wonderfully unique person, and I hope you’re happy where you are now.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
