God has a special place for you and I do not think that it will be setting up files or chasing one down. Thanks for your friendship. Your friend, Harry.

  12. It is difficult to believe he has gone. Clever, honest and sincere, Josh was a great friend. I am grateful we shared many laughs. A wry comment here, a frank observation there. Josh had a truly good spirit. We did radio shifts together, attended great concerts together, even recorded our own music together. These are moments I will forever treasure. Josh was always an adept user of new technology. He saw its potential and had a real knack for adopting and using it both effectively and artfully. He was also an avid student and collector of modern and classic music, media and culture. When he did something, he liked to do it right. He was a real friend whose impact will reverberate loudly for a long time to come. I will miss him terribly. God bless him. May you feel God’s grace and blessings, Pattie and John.
