Jeremy, we wish to express how inspiring you were for having the strength, courage and faith to face everything you went through with the cancer and treatments. Its amazing to see and hear about the sense of humor that you held up until the very last moment. We’re so thankful that you found your strength in Our Heavenly Father and Our Lord Christ Jesus. Now you’re born into the spiritual realm of Heaven, Glorious Heaven! Dena, and Jeremy’s family, relatives, friends and loved ones, may you find comfort and peacefulness in this time of sorrow. Allow yourself time for grieving his passing, for surely his own uniqueness of his own special ways will be missed, his smile, laughter, voice, his great company, his own way of doing things. His heart is forever grateful for helping him through his tough times, and all the loving support that you gave to him, may you continue to give each other.
