We are so lucky to have Jeremy. There is no doubt in my mind that we almost lost him-not just once but several times over that timeframe. His resilience and determination continue to amaze me even today-one whole year later. It is stunning how much has been accomplished in just one year especially when you consider the initial prognosis. It is also overwhelming to think of how much more there is ahead but I have no doubt that Jeremy will handle it with the same amount of grace and style.
It is also overwhelming to think about all of you. Our family, friends, and supporters. We are so appreciative of everything you have done-prayers, visits, house cleaning, meals, phone calls, babysitting, and your generous donations to Jeremy's account. You were here for him and here for us and I for one will never forget that.
So, to wrap this up (I can be so wordy sometimes) I echo Colleen's words. Jeremy's determination has been truly inspirational. I look forward to seeing and reading about all that will be accomplished this year-maybe we'll do the mini! I am choosing to treat today as a celebration of life and a humble reminder of how quickly it can change.
Here's to Jeremy!
People from our church continue to ask about you, Jeremy. Along with the medical updates, I always mention the positive attitude you've had despite all the life changes you've been through.
We have all witnessed a miracle... and we are all stronger because of Jeremy.....
We Love You,
Merrilinda and Skeets
Jeremy - thank you for making it look so easy. Through your determination and grace. We all shall live another day knowing that ANYTHING is possible if we believe.....
I love you my friend,
A year, 365 days, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes, 31536000 seconds AND ONE huge lesson from Jeremy to all of us: everyday is a gift. Jeremy thanks for changing so many lives with your determination and inspiration. Sorry you have had to go through this but we have all learned so much by your example. Take care and hang in there.
God bless you and your family. You have made such great progress; I so admire your courage and determination.
We think of you all the time.
