The Big 3-2!

December 27th is Joshua’s 32nd birthday!! We thought one way that we could celebrate is to put together a book of pictures and wishes from his friends and family. So, if you’d like to participate here is what you can do:

1. Send me a picture of you and Josh! Most pictures are probably available digitally and you can just email them to me, but for those who have been friends with Josh since wayyyy back in the day and only have hard copies, if you don’t have a scanner you can send them to me and I will scan a digital copy. Preferential treatment will be given to any picture in which Josh is breakdancing, riding a dirt bike, wearing make up and/or a loincloth, attending a sit-in, or generally acting like Josh 🙂

If you can, include approximately when and where the picture was taken and the names of the people in the picture.

Also make sure you include a birthday message!

2. If you don’t have any pictures, but still want to send along a birthday message, just email me your message and I will make sure that it gets included in the book!

My email address is rebekahnd AT Just email me for my physical address if you have a hard copy to send.

I’d like to have the book ready for him actually on the 27th, so please email me your picture/message on or before December 22nd.

Thank you in advance for helping make Josh’s birthday so special this year!!  – Rebekah Latchis (Josh’s sister)

Dana M. - I don’t have any pics but I wanted to say how thoughtful Josh and his family are (were) so many years ago. I worked with a young man, Greg, who became homeless after leaving a facility for troubled youth. Josh went to school with Greg and invited him to share his bedroom until the end of the school year. I visited both Greg and Josh in the Casteel home and they truly showed me what it was like to live Matthew 25. During Rick’s illness, Josh took over running the bookkeeping and helped tie up his parent’s finances. What a guy!!

Happy birthday Josh!!
