  1. To Katie, Evelyn and Hudson DeForest, Jeremy was the best husband and dad you could ever have. He loved you so much! To Jim and Denise, he loved you both and appreciated everything you did for him. You did a fine job raising Jeremy with a belief in the Lord and strong bonds to family. He learned from you both how to care for others, even strangers. Anyone who met him, never forgot his kindness and compassion. To Brandi and Cliff, you had the best brother in the world and I know he showed you how he felt about you both each and every time you were together. I love all of you as family and we will get through this together.
