Funeral services will be held at 7 p.m. today at the Immanuel Baptist Church at Mile 15 of Kalifornsky Beach Road in Kenai. Pastor Ray Boutwell will officiate. Burial will follow the services at Kenai City Cemetery.
Joshua was born April 29, 2003, at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage. He spent his short life in the NICU there.
"Little Joshua was born 15 weeks early. He fought for almost a week, but his lungs weren't strong enough. We would love to express our most sincere feelings and love for the NICU and all the staff at the Providence Hospital for what they did for our son and family. We spent six days with him. For he is now with Jesus," his family said.
