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.
How sad, he was pretty young. Prayers up for the family.
How heartbreaking for the Goldberg family.
He is with his Dad now.
Oh how terribly sad. Prayers for Lucianne, Jonah, and the entire family.
How sad .... my sympathies to the family
Prayers for Lucianne and family.
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.
I cannot fathom the pain of losing a child. I’m sorry for their loss.
Oh how sad. Nothing hurts more than to lose a child. Lucianne, May God comfort and strengthen you and your family in this painful time of loss.
May God comfort them in this time.
I was a L-dotter many years ago. (humming.bird)
his brother Joshua.
Condolences to the Goldberg family.
May Joshua rest in peace.
Rose, it was not Jonah, it is Joshua
This is Jonah’s brother Joshua who died.
Very sad, prayers are up for the family.
How sad. I’m very sorry to hear this.
We have lost a child and a grand child, one in the womb, one to SIDS...........you never forget and the strangest of events trigger a memory....
God Bless the Goldbergs.
Holy crap. Way too young, prayers up to friends and family.
I’ll notice his absence.
Joshua not Jonah
NOT Jonah, it is is brother JOSHUA.
WTF. Rest in peace.
The RQSR is a former L.Dotter, and this is indeed sad news to read. Prayers for Lucianne, Jonah, Chantal, and the entire family.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Be with the Goldberg family through this time. We pray your comfort and strength upon them. We pray good would come from this tragedy.
In Your Holy Name,
Wonderful people. Didn't know there was another son. Condolences.
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.
Sad, sad news! I also offer my condolences and prayers. It is just impossible to imagine the pain Lucianne and the rest of her family and friends are having to endure at this time.
I am so sorry to read this. I met Lucianne & Jonah at the thank you dinner for the House Managers back in ‘99. She is a lovely lady.
Prayers for the family. May the Lord comfort them and give them strength during this difficult time. Amen.
When our journey is over
and he wraps his arms around us and says
“My child welcome home.Your troubles are over.”
God Bless you Lucianne..My prayers are with you and the family..
May the Lord bless and keep you....and make His Face shine upon you...
....and bring you Peace.
Not Jonah. His brother, Joshua.
Since its 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 cant say the same for anybody else in my family. For obvious reasons, I wont 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.
Prayers for the Goldberg family on thier loss.
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?
So sorry for dear Lucianne and her whole family. they’ve done so much for conservatism and she is a smart and funny lady.
Don’t know the details about the accident, does anyone?
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.
And here is a video of Josh campaigning.
Joshua, not Jonah......
Prayers and condolences, Ms Lucianne and family...
I had the pleasure of meeting Lucianne and Jonah at the House Managers Thank You Dinner, back in 1999.
R.I.P. Joshua Goldberg.
Not Jonah, but Joshua his brother.
