Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
JOSHUA 1:5 ~ No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

We were so blessed to have Joshua in our hearts, arms and lives, even if for too short of a time.  We have memorized his precious face and look at his pictures constantly to give us comfort.  He is greatly missed, forever cherished and always remembered.  We know he is experiencing such joy in Heaven and we know that we will see him again!  What peace that brings!  Though we miss him dearly, Joshua is and will remain a very important and special part of our family.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our baby boy, Joshua Robert Larson, who was born still at Mt. Carmel St. Ann's Hospital in Ohio on December 23, 2004. We will remember him forever.

MATTHEW 19:14 ~ Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."



When I Get Where I'm Going
Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going

…It’s nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

…Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

We Thought of You Today
author unknown

We thought of you today
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know
Remembering you is easy
We do it everyday
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.

OVER YOU by Miranda Lambert Weather man said it’s gonna snow By now I should be used to the cold Mid-February shouldn’t be so scary It was only December I still remember the presents, the tree, you and me But you went away How dare you? I miss you They say I’ll be OK But I’m not going to ever get over you Living alone here in this place I think of you, and I’m not afraid Your favorite records make me feel better Cause you sing along With every song I know you didn’t mean to give them to me But you went away How dare you? I miss you They say I’ll be OK But I’m not going to ever get over you It really sinks in, you know, when I see it in stone Cause you went away, How dare you? I miss you They say I’ll be OK But I’m not going to ever get over you

Daddy's Eulogy  

Three days after I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior I got to know Becky, one of the greatest gifts God has given me, and even then I knew God was with us.

For a couple of years I went to school in Colorado, and she went to school close to home.  We prayed for a way to be closer, and God provided a way.

We prayed for Jesus to bring us closer to Him and strengthen our relationship, and we were blessed with the most wonderful wedding and marriage anyone could have (I think so anyway).

God gave us great jobs to take care of our material needs, a wonderful church and friends to help us spiritually, and close relationships with others who are still searching for Him.  In all these things God has provided a way.

We asked for baby

And God provided.

I/we asked for a boy (because girls are so high maintenance :))

And God provided.

We prayed for a name – and a day later, when I had just finished talking to a friend named Josh, I was thinking that maybe Joshua would be a good name.  I walked to my mailbox at work and was amazed to find a letter addressed to Joshua Larson.  Then the following weekend most of Becky’s family got together and voted on a name – without my input – and unanimously voted on Joshua.  God’s work was undeniable.

And I knew God was with us.

The name Joshua means, “the Lord is salvation"

In the Bible Joshua was the first one to see the Promised Land; this has come to be true in our family as well.

God has promised never to give us a burden heavier than we can bear, and through the seemingly hundreds of phone calls from people offering help in any way possible I see that He is providing for us once again, because he always provides a way.

Everyone asks what they could do to help.  I ask you to pray for us.  Ask for Jesus to mend our hearts and yours, and to draw us all constantly closer to him through the day that we get to meet Jesus and Joshua in Heaven.
What Makes a Mother  
What Makes a Mother

I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a Mother
And I know I heard him say.
A Mother has a baby
This we know is true.'

But God, can you be a Mother
When your baby's not with you?
Yes, you can, He replied
With confidence in His voice
I give many women babies
When they leave is not their choice.
Some I send for a lifetime
And others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb
But there's no need to stay.

I just don't understand this, God
I want my baby here
He took a breath and cleared His throat
And then I saw a tear.
I wish I could show you
What your child is doing today.
If you could see your child smile
With other children and say:
"We go to earth to learn our lessons
Of love and life and fear.

My Mommy loved me oh so much
I got to come straight here.
I feel so lucky to have a Mom
Who had so much love for me
I learned my lesson very quickly
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep
On her pillow's where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
And whisper in her ear.
"Mommy don't be sad today
I'm your baby and I'm here."

So you see my dear sweet one
Your children are ok
Your babies are here in My home
And this is where they'll stay.
They'll wait for you with Me
Until your lesson is through.
And on the day that you come home
They'll be at the gates for you.

So now you see what makes a Mother
It's the feeling in your heart.
It's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start.
Though some on earth may not realize
You are a Mother until their time is done.
They'll be up here with Me one day
And you know you're the best one.

"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)"
by the Dixie Chicks

Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Sweet dreams
