Joseph Martin Nemeth IV

I know I haven't posted on my blog for a few months.  A lot has been going on.  The day of my last post, I found out my older brother Josh had died.  Josh wasn't just my older brother, he was an amazing Godfather, friend, teacher, son, writer, lover of dogs, and so much more.  

Josh not only was fully committed to his family but also his job.  He was a dedicated teacher at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago, IL.  

He made such an impact on his students, we had to extend his wake an extra 90 minutes.... there was a line out the door and into the parking lot of family, friends, students, and alumni.  

He truly was a man for others.

He was so supportive of me.  Somehow Josh came to every event of mine - starting with my choir concerts when I was 8 years old, all the way up to my Polar Bear Plunger fundraiser for Invisible Conflicts.  I could always count on Josh no matter what - he was the person I called when I got a flat tier in downtown Chicago.  

There is so much more about Josh I cant write about.  Maybe other people's memories will help convey what an amazing person he was:Josh's Guest Book

Happy Birthday Josh!  I love you and will always remember you.  I'll be sure to enjoy a Good Book, a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and a Cheese Pie with Garlic Salt today.
