    Wow this news totally caught me off guard and I can't believe he has moved on. The boys and I just wanted to pass on out thoughts and prayers and hugs to the family as they are in our thoughts! Ron and the DG carpenter and landscape guys.

    I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Jeremiah growing up - you could always count on him to make our class at Riverside giggle. The last time I saw him, he greeted me with a hug, even though it had been 20 years since we had last seen each other - a testament to what a warm person he was. Sending prayers and support to his family and loved ones.
