Joshie’s Christmas party community’s way of saying goodbye

Brave Joshua Joel Oakhill said his last goodbyes to family, friends and the community at a big colourful Christmas party on Wednesday, November 28, held at the Eden Fishermen’s Club.

It is with great sadness to share news Joshie passed away in the arms of his mother Thursday evening at 7.30pm.

Family were close by, and still in shock as they had to say goodbye so soon.

The strong 5-year-old who had been battling cancer over the past year shared many great memories with the community.

The community’s response to his death has been enormous. Heartfelt posts sharing love and condolences have spread throughout social media, which shows Joshua had such an impact on the hearts of many.

Joshie’s family invite the community to his funeral at 11am this Saturday, December 8.

Everyone is welcome to attend to say their goodbyes at the end of Moorhead Street in Eden.

The family ask everyone to wear bright colours.
