On June 7th, Joshua Elwood Gorayeb, known as Josh or Gorb as many of you called him had lost his life due to a senseless violence. Unfortunately, this incident has put a burden on many hearts. Josh was born on October 30, 1982 in Columbus, Ohio. He was active in sports for many years while growing up. Josh was a 2001 Allstate wrestler, he had his brown belt in martial arts, and he was also as AAU Boxer. He also had a passion for drawing. Other than sports and art, Josh was also a huge fan of the 49er’s and Elvis Presley. He was an awesome brother, uncle, son and friend to so many. Josh was all around a great person in general. He would help out anyone if he could. Josh will be sadly missed, but we will continue to remember and cherish the memories that we all had with him.

I’m so sorry for your tragic loss. I have also lost close ones suddenly. But to lose someone due to violence can bring an added measure of pain. It may be of comfort to know how God feels when things like this happen. Psalms 72:14 assures us that he will save people from oppression and violence and that their blood is precious in his eyes. He has even promised to bring all who have died back to life in John 5:28,29. I hope this promise can cushion your grief. My sincere condelences. -Corina
