i met jeremy back in 99. i think it was on the southern tour that ended in atlanta. since then we had a lot of experiences together... some good, some bad. but nobody's perfect, especially me. no matter what, i was always able to look at jeremy and just know deep down he was a good person.
we hung out a lot during the florida run in october, and he was as kind and generous to me as anyone could have been. he was so excited about his daughter, telling everyone how he was turning his life around, and how he was really growing up. i too, heard about jeremy's grandmother passing away, and gave him a hug in the middle of his tears during the hot air balloon. i knew he had a lot of hope in his heart. i hope he was able to pass some of that on to his daughter, and family before he passed.
my thoughts go out to his friends and family.
