Josh had many hobbys and skills but his favorites were riding his unicycle, juggling fire and entertaining. He brought these skills to festivals putting smiles on faces and it was there he got the nickname "Bubbles". You will be sadly missed by family, friends and those you made smile.

Though we can not see Josh with our eyes, let us not forget his smile, his tender heart, his forgiving soul, but most of all his Magic that he shared with those in his Kingdom. Joshua himself said: Magic is Real, You just have to believe it's there to use it. 

The Body may wither and break but the spirit soul is eternal and immortal. We are more than our vessels, we are lights chasing one another like sparks of a fire, lighting the way for the next to follow.
