Dear Josh, I was your mom's teacher when she was a student at Bialik. I have very warm memories of her. We reconnected in the past few years and all she wanted to do was tell me how proud she was of you. Her love for you was fierce! I wish you strength at this incredibly painful and difficult time in your life.

Dear Josh, I was so saddened to hear about your mother's passing. It is brutally unfair that someone as young as you are should have had to deal with so much hardship. I believe that I speak for many of your teachers at Bialik when I say that we think of you as a kind, caring, intelligent, and responsible young man. We wish the best for you and want to help you in any way can. Unfortunately, many of us do not know how to reach you. So, please, if you need academic or personal support, remember that we are here and just an email away. You are in our hearts.

Dear Joshua, Your beautiful Mom was my student in my grade 3 class at JPPS. The thought of her makes me smile. When I met her by chance many years later she told me she had a son, and wanted so much for him to have all the benefits of an education with us at JPPS. And so it was arranged. I am very sorry that she has passed away. She was always full of optimism and energy that she directed to bring about the best for you. She was an amazing and special lady. May the memories of her bring you courage and blessings.

Dear Josh, Your mom was a special lady. She loved you fiercely & gave you all of her love 100% of the time. Over the years, I remember how funny and witty should could be in the most impromptu situations. She always found humour with scenarios that were quite mundane. She was also a straight-shooter, always honest. Ultimately, she most admired the man you have become today. You were a very devoted and caring son, and she was so very proud of you & all your accomplishments. Cherish all the special times and keep her close in your heart. We are thinking of you and wishing you strength at this difficult time and please just know there are many people and friends who are there for you. Our deepest condolences on your loss.
