It's hard to believe that it's been 2 weeks since my nephew, Joshua Aaron Kaplan's, untimely, shocking, gut-wrenching death. A young man who's life has ended at the age of 27. Life for my family feels a lot less vibrant, a little less sweet. Where there was once color, things seem black and white. Bland. Our grief is high and low...making for both good and bad days. But, despite the pain, we have been sustained by the love, prayers, donations, and kindness of family, friends, and complete strangers who've showed deep sympathy. We know that life goes on...by simply taking one day at a time, putting one foot in front of the other, until our emotions, find solid ground once again. My family is incredibly grateful to everyone far and wide who have endured this journey with us. We're navigating new territory -- and we may not get some things right. But please know that we feel your love and compassion and THANK YOU SO MUCH for being there! We love you in return --- The Kaplan Family.

Today we laid Josh to rest. He will soon be cremated. His ahes will be by sister's side in all the days that lie ahead. By having his remains -- my sister feels it will bring a measure of peace and comfort. Also knowing that Josh now walks with God, is also comforting. A young man who was open minded, loving and accepting is a display of God's love. Johua has left an indelible mark on all of us who had the pleasure of knowing him. My sister Stephanie is/has been a doting, supportive mother, who instilled positive values in her children, because she has such a warm and loving heart (like our mom!). Her loving ways, trickled down to Joshua who passed it on, as he was a natural big brother! His adoring brother and sister, Jacob and Alexis, will no doubt carry on his legecy. Thanks goes to all those who've helped to ease our pain and sorrow -- by being there to help us with funeral arrangements, and all the other behind the scenes details. There will be difficult days ahead as life carries on. But there's no doubt, that the wide circle of family and friends will there to help us transition to a new "normal." With gratitude and much love! The Kaplan Family
