Jeremy was a good guy. My memories I had of Jeremy was when I met him many years ago at the Timberlane pool . We became friends, was a age difference but we got to hang out. I remember the times playing playstion together. Lost contact for a while. Last time I saw him I almost didnt recognize him. Good guy, will surely be missed. Ill say a prayer for his family.
