    I was a young woman of of 17 when I read the book of Joshua. As I read of this leader/trogon, he reminder me of my grandfather. I told him if I had a son I would name him- first name Joshua and second name after him because I could see Joshua in my grandfather, who's name was Slavone (French). Thus, Joshua Slavone. Family tells me he is so much like him. He was an officer and now a lawyer.
