    Elijah… I lived across the street from your husband and his family on the Cape and knew them all. My heart breaks to hear of Josh’s passing. I lost my son Travis, who was the same age as Katie booth, 12 years ago. It is so sad for me to see children that I know dying early… I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers… Much love, Lauren Johnson Lavender.
