Josh and I have been friends for about 10 years through his employer Head to Tail day care in Schenectady NY. The gentle giant was a larger than life, compassionate, funny and extremely intelligent man. He was a coin collector and cared as much for people as his many dogs (he had over 10) plus hundreds over the years at work. If you wish to make a difference go the Josh Wilkins Memorial Fund at Go Fund Me and do what your heart dictates. Your Facebook members can see great pictures at the appropriate links. Respect to you and your family. Sincerely Frank

We never had a formal relationship, but I did play a few games online with you. Looking back those were some of the best of times. Looking forward those games will not be the same, something will be missing and you will always be remembered.
