God called one of his special angel’s home Thursday night, October 3, 2019. He is now in Heaven with his Grandpa and Nana Smith, along with his Grandpa Herb Blankenship and Aunt Sue Baker. Jeremy was a very loving son, father, nephew, friend and special man. Anyone who had the honor of meeting him loved him instantly. He could make you laugh till your sides hurt.
