Joshua's smiling shot was accompanied by a sobering title about addiction.

& # 39; Last Saturday my beloved wife Mary Anne and I let our youngest son, Joshua Lee Rosbach, rest. After a battle of twenty years, he finally succumbed to the demons he fought so long and so hard for, & wrote the captain.

& # 39; Addiction is a treacherous disease that has no social status or geographical boundaries. Whether you live in a 10,000 m² country house or a double wide trailer, the path of death, destruction and destruction it leaves remains the same.

& # 39; We loved Josh unconditionally and were proud of the man he had become despite his problems. There was no one I ever knew who gave more of himself to those in his life. He loved his whole being without expecting anything in return. We both feel a hole in our soul that will never be filled. & # 39;

& # 39; For those of you who have a friend, family member, son or daughter who is struggling, do everything necessary to get them the help they need. Be kind and loving and try to enjoy every second you have with them. Do not pray for our son, but please care for your children and friends who may need it, because it is not too late for them. & # 39;

The Rosbachs have also set up a memorial page for their son, where they have recorded a 41-minute memorial video with moments from his entire life.
