In January 2011, Joshua Amos Harris Edmonds was killed in a road traffic accident in Vietnam. He was 22 and on the trip of a lifetime traveling across South East Asia.
His parents created Beyond Goodbye — a book, website, and film — as a place for family and friends to remember Josh, as well as a resource for others who are grieving a loss. Learn more about Beyond Goodbye here, and click the image below to watch the video.
”Part of our way of coming to terms with the death of our son, has been to talk and to share and to create a collective space in which Josh and his memory continue to resound – we, his family and his many friends all carry a little bit of him as we continue through life (see the viral candle lighting ritual at the end of the film), and I have learnt some BIG things from this.”
