Memories Timeline


  1. Axiomist gone…when I heard about it, it was early in the morning and I'd just gotten off work. When I first joined Zelda Wiki, I used to look up to Josh. He was a great role model, and it showed. It was only later when I began speaking to him that we became friends. I am sad to see that someone I considered to be one of my first friends in the online community is gone. However, let us all take solace in the fact that he will never have to deal with suffering again.To his family, I send you my sincerest condolences. I hope you'll carry on his memory as we will.

  2. Dear LeJeune family,I wish you all the best, and send my condolences.Josh was a brilliant individual with that flair that set himself apart from others. He truly cared about the work he performed and most of all he cared about others who worked with him.Even in Spirit, he is still an outstanding individual.R.I.P Josh

  3. Erica, Jason and Ms Brenda, I am So sorry for your loss. I know how difficult this must be for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. From our family at Urban Missionary Church to the family of Josh LeJeune. Amy Bolduc is a member at our church in Conway and she informed us about the loss of this young man. We just wanted to let you know that we are praying for God's comfort and peace to be poured out on your family through the loss of Josh. My deepest concern is that the Lord would be glorified through this death and I pray that He would draw your entire family closer to Him through this tragedy.

  5. Hi Lejeune family, I was a very good friend of Josh's, from his wiki work.(i'm 18,british) When I first met him, I always saw him as a big brother, as he helped me climb my not-so-very-tall wiki editing ladder. He was such a wonderful friend and help..whenever i saw his name on my screen on msn, my heart warmed. It sickens me to my stomach that I wont be able to get that helping hand from my big bro that I'll very sorely miss. I'm crying as I write this, but I'm sure he'll be looking at me from upstairs, and laughing at me for being such a softy. I deeply loved him as a friend, and I send you my deepest sympathy. I'm hope my heartfelt condolences will, in some way, ease your loss.

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep y'all in my prayers. There are no words I can really say expect I am really sorry. I really wish I lived close by so I could be there. I miss all of you alot.

  7. I didn't personally know Joshua, or Axiomist, as he was called at NIWA, but he was an amazing member of the community and certainly a person to constantly look up to.

  8. I have been in your family for 6 yrs now and was nervous at first but then it seemed meant to be with the warmth and love I have witnessed over the years. I was worried about Josh at 1st (lol) because he had a different view on life and things that surrouned him. I noticed that with laughter aside you can talk to him share things with him and will share what he thought and gave you advice even though in his own words which sometimes you had to unscrabble what it meant (lol). He loved his family with passion and I only wished that I had spent more time with him to learn what he had to offer. Josh, I will miss you and love you just like if you were my own brother. R.I.P. My friend and brother!!

  9. I knew Josh from a number of online communities we were involved in, and worked closely with him for a number of years. Although we never had the opportunity to meet face to face, I considered Josh a true friend. It's tragic to realise the true extent of his positive impact only now that he's gone; I know a great many people who owe Josh so much for his kindness, support and friendship over the years. My thoughts are with his family and friends in this difficult time; I'm deepy sorry for your loss.

  10. I knew Josh through the online Zelda community, in particular Zelda Wiki where I worked alongside him. He was a fantastic member of the site, stepping up into a leadership position and helping out countless members. He was also a great person, really fun and a talented artist, and I remember having a lot of fun conversations with him. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing, and will miss talking to him. May he rest in peace, and I am praying for his friends and family.

  11. I knew Joshua from many of his online communities that he was involved in. He was a wonderful person and made a lot of people very happy. He will be missed. My love to you all in this difficult time.

  12. I like the AJAX format etbter, but the classic Joomla one is not bad. Yeah. We just reinvented the wheel. If users doesnt like it, we will revert it to default Joomla layout. The controls need to be more nicely organized for people who are not familiar with managing lists and spreadsheets. They are being worked upon. This is only an Alpha Testing site. The action of Add a New Obituary needs a really prominent button, and more instructive text with hover text instructions would be good too. Agreed. These will be made to look etbter once the major functionality is completed. Do you plan to make front end management of obituaries available to Joomla 1.5 as well, or just 2.5? I need this ability for a clients site. Yes, we will have all these features for all the current Joomla versions viz. Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.7 and Joomla 2.5.

  13. I would like to express my condolences to the family for your loss. At this trying time we can find absolute comfort in God's word the bible. For all those we have lost in death that is a guarrantee of a ressurection that is spoken of at Acts 17:31. God's orginal purpose was for mankind to live right here on a paradise earth as recorded in Ps 37:9-11,29. I really hope you can find the comfort you need to cope with your loss.

  14. Josh (or Axiomist) was a good friend to me. We started becoming friends when we both talked about genres and gaming. He has certainly guided me such as the wiki I'm running, and personal problems. Although I only knew him for a year since NIWA debuted, his personality kept my spirits up.I thank everyone who knows this dude at one point or another; he will indeed be missed.

  15. Josh, better known to me as Axiomist, was the first person I met when joining He was also the first person to help me out, and I have since viewed him as a sort of mentor. He was very respectful, and he supported my ideas with encouragement and advice every time I asked for it, and he was not afraid to voice his own opinions and disagreements. I could even talk to him about personal issues, and he would always be willing to listen. Josh was kind and ready to help to the end, and I am sure many would agree. I really hate to hear he is gone. Sorry for you loss.

  16. Josh, or Aximost, as i knew him, was a good person. He certainly worked hard for WiKirby, along with the rest of NIWA, as he did with everything else. My heart goes out to the to his friends, family and co-worker. I am truely sorry that this happened. R.I.P. Aximost-tacopill.

  17. Josh, or Axiomist, as I knew him, is an inspiration to me. I use the present tense because his impact on my work continues even after his passing. When I met him, he was an administrator on an online encyclopedia dedicated to Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game franchise; I was a simple editor, new to the site. He took me under his wing, taught me the ins-and-outs of the site, and even took time out of his busy work schedule to share his life experiences and interests with me over Skype. Josh was a very hard worker, as evidenced by his surviving wiki, WiKirby, a website he built from the ground up that still sees high support and interest from the video gaming community. As I grew more familiar with the site, Josh pushed for my promotion. I do believe I am an administrator today because of the efforts and support I received from Josh in my early days. Josh was always popping a joke, and even when he was stressed, he always seemed to lighten up the wiki's chatroom with his quick wit. God bless Josh's family, friends, and colleagues as they mourn a magnificent worker, rich personality, and poingant legacy Josh has laid for those in his life.

  18. Joshua, also known as Axiomist on the internet, created many memories for me. One of which was when he told me a certain band stole his username Axiomist, and took it as their band name. He would joke about how unoriginal they were, and that he should somehow get even. He was a good friend, and loyal wiki editor. Rest in peace, Josh… rest in peace.

  19. Known this family for years and remeber having sleepovers at their house. Erica and I always had to yell at Josh and tell him to turn down the Guns N Roses music he had blaring in his room. Josh was a quiet, reserved, wonderful guy and his memory will live forever in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with this family always.

  20. My heart is very heavy for Josh's family. My family has known the LeJeunes since we were young. Josh has always been a sweet and caring person. Always willing to help anyone in any way he could. He will never be forgotten!

  21. My name is Amy Bolduc and I was a good friend of Axiomist through a Legend of Zelda site called Zelda Wiki.Josh was a good friend of mine, helpful and humorous and an interesting person to talk to about anything. I've talked to him mostly about wiki related stuff, but we also had other discussions from time to time.Hearing this from a few others me and Axiomist knew, I was shocked and upset about hearing of his death. I send my condolences to his family who have to deal with the loss of him and I will pray to God for his family.I'm not much for words… But both me and my boyfriend are sorry for the loss.

  22. sorry about your loss, josh was a very good boy and will be greatly missed. we will always remember him, he's in my prayers. if you need anything at all Brenda and family let me know.sorry about your loss again.

  23. To the LeJeune Family You are in our hearts and prayers. We can only ask that God grant your heart peace and that He carry you through these hard times . Sorry that mom and I can not be there, however we send our love across the miles.
