The unfairness of someone this young being taken is even more tragic given the possibilities that still laid ahead to Josh who was creative, inventive, intelligent, generous and witty.
His sister Sarah send us the following email message.
"Dear Family and Friends,
As most of you know we have established a scholarship fund at Ohio State in Joshua's memory to be a lasting and permanent tribute to him. Joshua was committed to his education and we are going to try to raise the money to sustain a small scholarship for years to come.
To help us get the scholarship off the ground, we're hoping that you can make a contribution in Joshua's name in one of two ways:
1. Go online to www.giveto.osu.edu
/igive and click the Other: Please Specify Special Instructions button. Then, enter your donation and add that it should be directed to the Joshua Topy Memorial Fund, #312500.
2. Send in a check to Gail Feinstein, 1480 W. Lane Avenue, Columbus, OH 43221 and write on the check that it's to go toward the Joshua Topy Memorial Fund #312500.
In order for this scholarship to work we need to get it off the ground with as much momentum as possible so please consider contributing what you can.
