Lisa Vanderpump was just one of the many Bravo stars who sent their condolences to Captain Lee. "My very deepest condolences. How sad," Lisa tweeted to Captain Lee on July 30. "I feel your pain...I am so sorry."

Captain Lee responded to Lisa's message on Twitter on August 9 and shared how thankful he was to receive so much love from her and so many others. "Thanks so much Lisa, we're just now getting to all the kind and loving notes," he tweeted. "[Everyone] has been so kind and gracious, [my wife] Mary Anne and I are deeply moved and humbled."

The Below Deck captain opened up about his son in a post on Instagram on July 29. "This past Saturday, my beloved wife Mary Anne and I laid our youngest son, Joshua Lee Rosbach to rest. After a twenty year struggle, he finally succumbed to the demons he fought so long and so hard. Addiction is an insidious disease that knows no social status or geographic boundaries. Whether you live in a 10,000 sq ft mansion or a double wide trailer, the path of death, destruction and devastation it leaves remains the same," Captain Lee wrote. "We loved Josh unconditionally and were proud of the man he had become in spite of his problems. There was no one I ever knew who gave more of himself to those in his life. He loved with all his being without expecting anything in return. We both feel a hole in our souls that will never be filled."

Captain Lee added, "So my message to those of you who are fighting this disease, find a way to get help no matter what. For those of you who have a friend, family member, son, or daughter who's struggling, do what ever it takes to get them the help they need. Be kind and loving, and try to enjoy every second you have with them. Do not pray for our son, but please take care of your children and friends who may need it, as it isn’t too late for them."
