Joshua Goldberg, Lucianne's son passes away
Lucianne Goldberg ^ | 2/12/2011 | Lucianne

Posted on 02/12/2011 8:12:03 AM PST by Samizdat

Tragic news about Joshua Goldberg,Lucianne Goldberg's son. She worked tirelessly to bring the Clinton's to justice and now has a blog site called Lucianne.com Here is what she wrote:

To my Dear, Loyal, Funny, Smart, Patriotic Ldotters: It is with a heavy heart and more pain that anyone should endure that we announce the death this week of our beloved Editor-in-Chief, Joshua J. Goldberg. He was my son, Jonah's brother, Chantal's husband and friend to scores of people throughout his young life. It was a tragic fall that killed him. He suffered no pain and is in God's arms. There is a thread here to express condolences. Needless to say email to the family would overwhelm at this time.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the end of the day.

If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My Life's been full, I savoured much, Good friends, good times, a loved one' touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

Devastating news. A terrible loss to the family and to conservatism—he was a truly nice man.

Thoughts & prayers to the family.

I am so sorry to read this.

My heartfelt sympathy is with the Goldberg family. Such pain is hard to fathom by others until they experience it. May the Lord ease their sorrow and comfort them with His all-encompassing love.

Joshua Goldberg, Jonah Goldberg........

I was aware of but one son. Which of the two spoke after the pizza fest following the March For Justice Halloween eve 1998 at the AIA building? That was the day when the forum coalesced to become FReepers.

I always thought it was Jonah but now am unsure.

I’m very sorry to hear it. Prayers and condolences for Joshua and the family.

FreeRepublic and Lucianne and Jonah (I didn’t know about Joshua at that time) worked very closely to expose the clintons. I remember that time very well. After a time, they went their separate ways, but continued to do good work for the conservative cause.

By Jonah Goldberg [via National Review posting]

Since it’s out there on the web, I thought I should acknowledge the sad news here. My older — and only — brother passed away this week. He hurt himself terribly in an accident and he died at the hospital a few days later. He was 43. I received word in Israel and raced home in time to say goodbye. His wife, Chantal, and I were there at the end. He felt no pain. I can’t say the same for anybody else in my family. For obvious reasons, I won’t be around here for a while longer. As I learned when my father passed a few years ago, I work with some of the kindest people in the world.

Just got Jonah”s book “Liberal Facism”, can’t wait to read it. I had no idea he was Lucianne’s son. So she had Joshua, Joana, and other kids?

Joshua Goldberg, R.I.P.
Thomas Lifson

Joshua Goldberg, son of Lucianne, brother of Jonah, and husband of Chantal, died long before his time, following injuries resulting from a fall. Although he was less well-known than his mother and brother, Josh quietly edited the sites Lucianne.com, BlogsLucianneLoves, and The Connection, working mostly behind the scenes. That was his way.

Following 911, Josh was one of those New Yorkers who put on his work boots and walked miles to the WTC site to help go through the rubble looking for survivors and victims' bodies. That was the kind of man he was, quietly doing the right thing, and never seeking public credit for it.

For reasons only God knows, Lucianne, Jonah, and his wife Chantal, have suffered deep grief that will never go away. Our thoughts are with them, and with Josh, who is now with God. May they find some degree of solace in the condolences of the many, many people who have been touched by their kindness and by their untiring work.

Update: Josh ran for New York City Council from the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and did better than any Republican candidate in recent memory, in that liberal bastion. His campaign page is found here.

(Joshua Goldberg For The NY City Council)

And here is a video of Josh campaigning.
