As a way of remembering his dear son, Joshua Lee, Rosbach opted for a tattoo of his son's face on the left side of his chest. With a touching caption, "Where is Josh?" below Joshua's grinning face, Rosbach is still cherishing fond memories of his departed son.

To come up with Joshua's tattoo, People reported that Rosbach collaborated with a man called Darian of the Tamarac, Florida-based High Spirits Tattoo Co.

ROSBACH GOES AN EXTRA MILE IN HONORING HIS LATE SON

To help his wife, Mary Anne, heal and cherish the memorable experiences with Joshua, Rosbach directly assisted in the re-designing of Anne's wedding ring.

To make sure that the ring would always remind his wife of their cherished son, Rosbach settled for a design that highlights a heart displaying Joshua's name with some of his ashes inside. 

GONE SO SOON BUT STILL ALIVE IN THEIR MINDS

Expressing the emotional hiccups that come with losing a loved one, Rosbach mentioned that forgetting the loss isn't easy, and as parents, they're still trying to come to terms with it. Joshua's death has left a massive hole in their hearts.

He went on to say that it was painful and tragic that Joshua is gone. Adding that he would have preferred that parents die first instead of children, Rosbach echoed the mournful cry of parents who have lost their children prematurely.

ROSBACH ESTABLISHES A SCHOLARSHIP IN HIS SON'S NAME

Although Joshua Lee is no more, Rosbach established a scholarship to honor him by helping someone in need. The parents chose a person to receive free in-house treatment at the Awakening Recovery Center in Greenacres, Florida, indicating their compassion for people battling drug addiction.

Joshua Lee,42, owing to an accidental drug overdose, passed away on July 22, 2019. He had struggled with addiction for 20 years.
