Josh Richardson Tragic Passing

I am reaching out tonight for a family we love very much and I'm sure many of you know by their generous spirit and kind smiles in the Michiana Community, Saint Joseph Parish(Mishawaka) and wherever they touch. For those of you outside of Michiana, you would be Blessed to know them. They are the Richardson's of Mishawaka and they are a family of doers and wherever there is need they rise up to meet it. They are generous with their time, talent and treasure even when it's not convenient. Mark and Linda have raised a brood of 11 instilled with these incredible values, rooted in the Catholic Faith. This posting finds this wonderful family suffering in the midst of trying to understand the untimely and tragic passing of their son and brother, Josh Richardson, who has unexpectedly gone to meet his final rest in Christ. Josh was greatly loved by his family and all who met him and well respected as a competitive diver. He was in Virginia going to college on a scholarship received based on the merits of his diving skills. Josh had just turned 19 years old a month ago and had his whole life ahead. The Richardson's need our help to transport Josh's body home and put him to rest. There is so much on their plate so let's please offer them our love, prayers, thoughts and any monetary gift possible to ease this burden for them. Please take this mission to do what you are able and rise up as the Richardson Family would do for you. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and may Perpetual Light Shine upon him. Thank you and God Bless.
