With much sorrow in my heart tonight, I sadly share that Josh Brown, my most favorite person, my love, my monster-bear, my adventure-buddy, spouse and best friend passed away.
I had the honor of being with him as he took his last breath at around 5:15 p.m. And the joy of spending hundreds of other amazing moments together.
While we thought this moment might be coming, nothing could truly prepare me (or us) for it. And the sorrow will linger on.
Yes, of course, while we trust and believe that Josh is now discussing theology with Jesus and enjoying the company of so many people we love who are also in heaven, it is still a sad day for us here.
Thank you for your prayers, your love and friendship through all of this.
I take a huge big breath and hit post. Posting doesn't make the news any more or less real but it is still a big marker in our story.
I am continuing to share my heartache in a new section called Grieving On.

In April of 2019, we learned that Josh had a large brain tumor, a glioblastoma, in the middle of his brain. At the age of 41, this was quite the surprise. Josh sadly passed away after a short battle on September 30, 2019.

These past months, we've navigated the complexities of treatment, and hospice care and learned that there wasn't really treatment and that in Josh's case, the tumor was inoperable.
We're sharing our hearts and experience as we navigate this unexpected turn and God's goodness in the middle of it. We hope to encourage others by sharing our story.
Thank you for following along with our journey even in grief.
