Below is the tribute he wrote for his 2 brothers – Jackson (8th grade) and Ethan (3rd grade).
This is one proud Daddy!
“Tell me what people can steal from your heart.
What can they take?
People can take things you love, desire or need – your family, friends, food and water.
But…I know that whatever happens, no one can take my love for my two wonderful brothers.
No matter what happens, no matter how much evil, ruthless people can take, they can’t take that from me.
My little brother is very close to my heart.
He loves me with all his heart.
He often puts me before himself, and cares for me.
My older brother is amazing because of how much he corrects me if I am wrong, helps me if I need help, comforts me if I’m scared, cares for me, and more.
My brothers do so much for me.
Think of what people can’t take from you.
Then just keep them close to your heart.” (Josiah Heck, 8th grade, Allison Middle School)
