When their son, Joshua, died at the tender age of 14, Joe and Rosemary Wilker were devastated. But soon they found out that Josh had not lost his life to death, but triumphed over it. They asked their friend, history author and novelist Marie Murphy Duess, to help them share their heartbreaking yet uplifting story so that others who have "lost" loved ones may find comfort in knowing that they are not "lost" at all, but rather have moved to a different place - a place where they are free of the anxieties of this world and in a new home where they can still be with us and more importantly also with God.
Joshua's Ringby Marie Murphy Duess

Joshua Wilker didn't want to die. He didn't want to be known for miracles. He didn't want to do anything more remarkable than any other boy would. He just wanted to live an ordinary life, with the normal dreams of every boy-the typical desires, concerns, and hopes of every boy.
His parents didn't want him to die. The only miracle they looked for was one that would save his life and make him well so that he could live and grow to manhood.
This is a story that is told too often by too many parents of children who are diagnosed with life-threatening disease and lose their battle against death. Yet this story, perhaps like others, has a rather remarkable outcome...not an ending, but a continuation. In the end it is a testament that these children didn't lose to death, but triumphed over it.
Joshua's Ring is a story about courage, strength, truth, faith, and the power of love even after death.
