Jeremy ... Six years later.

It's been quite a while since I've posted here..  Today is the sixth anniversary of my nephew Jeremy's death.  Jeremy was a very special part of the family and his community.  He was a big brother and oldest son .. he was a band member and was very popular at school.  I don't have any new pictures or videos but I do want to share the ones I have.  

I also have some of the videos that were shared...

This Week....

Four years ago today an Angel called a 16 year old Boy named Jeremy Gomez home.He had had a very difficult few months ... first needing a liver transplant then finding he had leukemia.He went from a happy, very involved teen in Early march to laying in a bed in a hospital in South Florida, surrounded by family and friends.


Jeremy loved Music and Things Purple and participating in 'educational' videos.

A few Thoughts

Death came in the silence of the nighta knock sending fear to the boneHe came looking for me alonehis ride had only room for one.Better to leave this place,and live now Forever.Stand not at my grave and weepFor I’m the wind that stirs your soulLook not for me for I’m not thereI’m the glint in flakes of snowI’m the cool shower on April mornIn the hush of nights silent airI’m the rush that that fills your soulStand not at my grave and weepFor I’m not deadI’m with you at your sideWhen you feel the wind blowI’m the sweet uplifting rush.Look to the northI’m the Glimmering starCry not for mefor I’m eternally yours.

Happy 20th, Jeremy!

Happy 20th Jeremy!!

Twenty years ago today a child was born who brought all of the normal joys and challenges of being a boy to his parents.  He made them very happy at times and at others .. not so much.  Typical for a growing boy.  
As he grew, he developed a love of music and learned to play some instruments.  He was even good enough to play in his school band.  
He had a huge smile that effected everyone who met him.  He loved to travel and be with his friends.  He was very popular.  
A short time after his 16th birthday.. that all changed.  After a brief illness he lost a short fight with leukemia.  Everything seemed to happen so fast.  One day a vibrant teen in high school ... then he was gone!
We are approaching the fourth anniversary of that horrible event.
His Family and Friends are remembering him and that time.  

Today he would have been 20.
