For a young man who never spoke a word, Jeremiya imparted more wisdom in his short life than most of us who live 70-80 years. I personally learned much from him and will treasure having had the opportunity to know and love him. In his name and spirit, I will try to live my life as he would have. I know it is always tough for a parent to bury thier child. It is unnatural. However, Jaime and Jessica have forever given me the strength to deal with my own issues. Watching this young couple handle what would crush most people, in such a positive and loving way, has reinforced my faith in humanity. God’s Blessings to the entire family.
JJ and Jessica: May your love and memories bring you peace forever.
Jeremiya: You are in a wonderful place now safe from sickness and pain. Watch over daddy and mommy to keep them safe. We love you little cousin. Hugs and kisses:):)

J.J. and Jessica, I just want you to know how proud, I am of both of you. You have both been the best parents that Jeremiya could have ever asked for. I know its going to be very hard, but remember its not good-bye forever, but just so long for now. Jeremiya is in the best care we could have asked for. He came into our lives and touched all of us in many different ways. I want you to know that although the road ahead is going to be tough. I will always be there for both of you. If you need anything or just someone to talk to just call and I’ll be there. I love you both. Love uncle Allen
