"As you all know by now, we lost our beautiful Josh on Friday morning. Our hearts have been so broken we have been unable to put anything into words or pen to paper. Many of you know Josh has been a troubled soul and has had the black dog of depression nipping at his heels for many years but especially over the last 12 months, which have been torturous for him. During the past week he put plans in place to ensure that the black dog would stop chasing him, and he succumbed to his battles and took his life of Friday morning. While our hearts have been broken and our lives forever changed, we are at peace with the fact that he is now himself at peace, he has finally found a peace he could never find in this life. We have been overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support we have received from so many people. "
Words from his mum Leanne Patteson.
