Joshua James funeral

$4,115 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 57 people in 37 months
As everyone knows Josh was killed in Townsend on April 22, 2016. He was shot trying to save his friend from two men who were robbing them. Unfortunately we do not have the money to have a service. We have tried to get help from victims services but they are not wiling to help due to the circumstances. His son and family are asking everyone for a donation to lay him to rest. He deserves this more then anything. He died being a hero. Josh has a 5 year old son Connor who deserves to have his father laid to rest properly. Any donations will help. Please share this over the social networks. His son and family needs your help!

I am withdrawing the money tomorrow morning. If anyone else plans on making a donation. Please have them in by tomorrow at 11. Thank you everyone who has donated. It was greatly appreciated. Me and Connor really appreciate the love and support everyone has been giving us. I know if Connor was old enough to understand he would thank you all too. He would really appreciate seeing how everyone came together for his daddy.

Thank you everyone who has contributed. I hope we continue to get donations so my son can lay his father to rest. Josh was an amazing father. He loved Connor and wanted nothing but the best for him. Josh did everything in his power to give Connor the life he never had. Telling our five year old son his father was killed was the hardest thing ever. The look in our sons eyes destroyed me. We appreciate the support and prayers. Josh and Connor deserve this. Please help us.
