Wow, this just made me so sad! I feel so bad for this family. He obviously had
finished his mission here on this earth. Sounded like an amazing person. I pray
you can find peace!
I am so, so very sorry that his happened to your family. I wish there was some
way to absorb part of your pain. I wish that when things like this happen we
could share the hurt so that it doesn't have to be borne by just a few. I
am sending as much love as I can, being just a stranger on a computer. I am so
Erica grew up with my daughters in Virginia. She is as sweet, kind, spiritual
and wonderful as any parent could hope for. Now at 23 years old she is both a
new mother and a widow... all within 24 hours. Although I never got to meet
Josh, I'm sure he was the same type of person. My heart breaks for both
Erica, as well as Josh's family. I hope people will join me in
contributing to the fund linked in the story... which will help pay for his
funeral and assist Erica as she deals with this ordeal.
I personally know Josh Robison or Elder Robison. I met him in the Philippines as
a missionary sharing the teaching of Jesus to every families: he walk under the
hot tropical weather of our town along with his companion just to fulfill their
mission. He is very gregarious, generous and hilarious person. I didn't see
any cultural shock in him when I first saw him: he's fluent in Filipino,
and he participated to our native practices without hesitation. I remember the
time he treated our neighborhood with a pizza and the time and the time he
showed us his hometown through wikimapia.com. Among all the LDS missionary that
was assigned in our ward, he is the only one who was assigned twice to our ward;
in fact, his last ward was our place. I may not be a member of LDS but, I fully
known Elder Robison. It is very shocking to here about this news this morning.
I'm fully certain that he's with God. Rest in Peace Elder and
Condolence to the bereaved family.
God bless and give peace to his family. I'm so sorry for such a loss. He
sounds like a wonderful person. Such sadness and love in life.
Stories like this ARE news-worthy: they remind us that life is fragile and
swift. They also put whatever trials we think we're experiencing into
perspective. The comments here are also important. UteNationAlum
expressed the same thought I had--everyone did all that they could, but this
young man's earthly mission was over. I can't imagine the
emotional turmoil this family is experiencing, but I pray they will be granted
understanding and peace. Somehow, good will come out of this. It always does. It
may take a very long time, but eventually all of them will understand.
That's the miracle of life, and of passing from this life.
How heartbreaking to hear of Josh's quick and sudden death from such an
infection. He must have had extreme headaches, much worse than a migraine, which
are really painful. Seeing the picture of him holding his precious newborn son
makes me cry.My heart goes out to Erica and little Logan, and the
rest of his family. I'm sure Josh will be with you always.
I, too, appreciated this story though it is very shocking and sad. Our thoughts
and prayers go out to his wife and family. It makes me realize that life is so
short. I will be more thoughtful and kind today and tomorrow(s. Even though we
don't know the whys of his being taken so young, we do know that he was a
worthy young man and will, one day, be reunited with his wife, son, and family
My condolences go out to his family....I was just curious if they found out
exactly what happened to him...sounds like he may have had a case of Valley
Fever. Does anyone know?
no words can express to this new mother and now widowed bride, how sorry we are.
My wife and I feel so badly for her and the baby, and offer prayers for their
comfort and support. Sad so sad, but life is but a fleeting moment in eternity
and you will be together again,
I can't say anything to make you feel better. I want to tell you that when
my only grandson passed on at 2 1/2 months old, I was comforted in the fact that
the Lord needed him more than I did. How special your son and husband and father
of Logan is that the Lord needed him now. He also knows how strong your family
is and that you will be blessed as well. I love you and will pray for you and
your family. Your son now has a personal angel watching over him and your
family! Peace be with you all, not only at this time but throughout the year.
what a shock, as we read the story, to realize that josh was our tagalog tutor
when we were preparing for our mission here in the philippines. we looked
forward to our two sessions each week on skype.our heart and prayers
go out to his family. our memory of josh's time with us makes our stay here
even more meaningful.
Praying for peace for his family.
This is a very poignant story about a fine family and their loss. I have never
met them but am moved to help them by donating to their fundraiser at
GiveForward.com Please all do something. Merry Christmas everyone.
So sorry for their trials. I pray for the comforting spirit of the Holy Ghost to
be with you now and in the next several months. May you feel love, comfort and
So sad! May God bless and strengthen his family.
My thoughts and prayers go to this wonderful family. I hope that this does not
come across as insensitive, but I'm just curious as to how he got the
