My longest friend of over 20 years. I'm mad at myself for not getting out there sooner. It wasn't but a few weeks ago I came to visit you and found your place burnt down. I was stunned, shocked and scared. Then I got your text and I praised God for your wellbeing. I was coming to invite you to church then when I saw your place burnt, I was gonna invite you to stay with me. Either way I'm still upset with myself for not getting out there to see you more. I miss you Jeremiah. I miss most of everything about you. You've been my friend for over 20 years. Been there for me through all my terrible trials and tribulation. YOU'RE the one who taught me the basic rock drum beat on the drums! I will never ever forget you bro. May God have mercy on your soul and may He comfort the family that loved you so very much. I love you all.
