|Joshua Isaac Perkins|
Most of the time, I hear fairly quickly about someone who died under similar circumstances to Daniel. Occasionally, I do not. Joshua Isaac Perkins died suddenly and unexpectedly at age thirteen a year ago. Like Daniel, Joshua was the youngest of four children. Joshua had been homeschooled and also had attended New Covenant Christian Fellowship School. Daniel died at home, but Joshua collapsed at church, and despite CPR, he was pronounced dead later at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in
Joshua will always be the beloved youngest son of Mark A Perkins and of Carleen A (Hazen) Perkins. Joshua also left three siblings, (Jacob, Brandon and Hannah) many relatives and lots and lots of friends. He brought light wherever he went. He loved video games, board games, and the family's beloved beagle, Buddy. He loved hiking, movies, and fishing with his grandpa. He loved being with his family.
This happens to too many children, and particularly to too many boys of Daniel's and Joshua's age. Please pray for this family. A year is a short time on a journey of grief.
