Joshua Armendariz is my cousin. I just want to share a couple of times with him, but he was an amazing cousin. The best cousin and friend that I could ever have. On Easter day (two years ago) we were at his mother’s house. That day we had a lot of fun. We played together and everything was going good. A couple of months later my dad gave us bad news. Joshy had an accident. He was driving on summer vacation to his house, and a couple of miles from his house, he lost the control of his truck. We don’t know yet why but the policeman told us that he tried to not hit some animal; so he hit himself. He was ejected from the truck through the front window. He died instantly. His face wasn’t destroyed at all. The police don’t know how he crashed. They said that probably he was calling somebody and saw the animal, and he tried to not hit it. But what do you do? Would you hit something else or have it hit you? Joshua’s family is crying for him… He was the perfect boy… He played basketball and was a good son. He saved an animal’s life (but he gave his life so the animal could live.) I do not agree with that, but Joshy, you are my hero and you died for the humanity… In my heart you’re always gonna live… We miss you!!! Guys please pay attention to what you’re doing when you’re driving… Your lives are the most important for your families… PLEASE THINK BEFORE ACTING!!!
