Help Josiah Gibson's Family

On Thanksgiving Day Josiah promised his grandmother he would be home for Christmas, but not this way. Since his death just a few days after the holiday in Seattle, Washington his family has been overwhelmed with grief compounded by sudden and unexpected expenses. No one is prepared to bury their son, let alone the financial burden this puts on a family. Josiah was not just a devoted and loving son, he was a beloved member of the Mashpee Wampanoag community who traveled Turtle Island easily making friends where ever he went and bringing joy to every circle; often times through creative expression in music and poetry. But like each and all of us he was vulnerable to the demon of addiction and despite his physical strength and deep desire to be free of it his dimpled smile and bright eyes have been stolen from us. Please help his family to send Josiah home. No amount of giving it to small.
