One year on and I am still praying for you I know the pain wont ease and it must still be as hard for you today as always
April 14, 2008
As we approach the 1 year anniversary, much anger, fear, hurt, pain, sorrow, and despair remain. Not a day goes by that I don't think about Jeremy and his family. I cannot and will not forget the events of that day. Nor will I forget the wonderful joy and happiness that was always with Jeremy. This world is full of many tragedies and painful events. We can choose to live in fear, despair, and darkness, or we can choose to learn from Jeremy's example and "live" - not afraid to try new places or new things. A runner who loved the journey, never tired of the repititive, and always refused to quit. And when things got tough, he found a way to make the best out of it. With this anniversary I want to send a fond hello to those that remain in Jeremy's family - you're always in my thoughts and prayers. The rest of our family's thoughts and prayers are with you as well. Living life does not mean forgetting, there are many dear relatives who have passed before - and this particular pain is one that does not go away entirely. We know it's hard to smile at times, but remember Jeremy's actions - when times got tough - he found a way to live, smile, and not let the fear, darkness, nor despair knock him off stride.

It is almost a year, and it does not seem possible. When we hit the Christmas Holidays, I remembered when you came up with Lex to visit us for the first time, and how you so gingerly balanced time with your family and with us. How you brought me sugar free cookies, and wished me a happy birthday. I would've loved you're ribbing me this year about turning 60. Most people thought it uncool having a Christmas Eve Birthday, and you thought it was so cool. Our door bell rang at Christmas, and there was no one there. I think it was you telling us it was Ok to enjoy my birthday and Christmas. I firmly believe in spirits among us, as does my one aunt, and sometimes I feel your presence so strongly. Especially when I feel tired, and don't want to continue a task. My Pastor spoke in his homily of VT Engage, and what wonderful kids were at Tech, and how they gave to their community. How we can honor you all by doing the same thing. All hours accounted for prior to 4/16, will be dedicated back to you all. Lex did get down to New Orleans, like you both wanted to do, and worked to rebuild a community center. She is keeping up the good work. Lex is working on a race in your honor (4/20/08) at Clemson, and I know you are proud. Somehow we will get that track built in Bellefonte PA. We are all focusing our grief for something good, which will benefit others, and that's what you would want. I hope God gives some peace to the families, and that you all lend your strength to us, when April 16th comes around. We never got to call you son, but we feel that you always were, and always will be. Love to you in Heaven!

Tonight is November 29th, 2007. Jeremy, I am home and want to love life like I loved life all of your 27 years. I want to tell you that I love your mother so dearly, she is the beauty of each of my days. I love Jennifer, Joseph, and Stephanie. During the past 2 months or more, I have spent time hospitalized. My family have supported me and their love has helped me. I love you mom and dad, Brian and Betsy, Georgia and Pat, Tim and Becky. Christmas is coming soon, my Christmas wish is that the love we have continues and will bring some feeling of happiness. Jeremy, I miss you. Please, pray for me.
