Josh Ethan Kinsella Bassett
Born: 30 Apr 2017

South Africa
Our dearest little Angel. You are dearly missed by your Mommy Daddy your brothers. And the rest of the family. I missed you dearly everyday. You were only with us for 21 days of life. And the lord Jesus Christ called upon your name.
There is no day passes by that I don't think of you my little angel.
Rest well My baby boy Josh. I'm not sure how long it will take for me to heal from this void. You would have been 5 year old toddler running around. But I know you are with us in spirit. May your soul rest in eternal Peace. Mommy, Daddy and Brothers miss you dearly.
