"I am Jeremiah's youngest brother. Jeremiah passed my senior year of high school and has been a driving force in my life before and after and now, more than ever. I have gone since to become a teacher and wrestling coach. I just finished my second season of wrestling and the team finished 2nd in the state of SD and 1st the year prior. I use him as inspiration to push to for better and when things get tough, its actually not that bad. I wish I could of spent more time with him, still be spending time with him, but always leave my thoughts with a smile thinking of him. He would tell me, don't worry, your good, its good. A simple and easy message and don't let your worries overcome you. I name my daughter that was born August, 23rd, 2015 after him. Miah. A hero, a soldier, a brother, a friend, and great human. Thank you everyone for all the kind words, thoughts and gestures. It means the world to our family. Thank you!"

"I've known you since I was just a little tyke. You, James, and Me would always play Sega Genesis and hungry hungry hippo. Then the times faded away, we went out seperate ways. You were a few years older and did your thing, but I always noticed you in the school hallways. Your senior year will be remembered by everyone in the school that year of your shorts and tube socks with moccasins. You then went and fulfilled your goals of being in the Army. You served your time but decided that it wasn't enough, so you went back. During your break at home, I was lucky to have seen you and tried to hold a conversation. I asked you how things have been and we discussed other minor events. But more importantly, all of our times together will hold a place in my heart... miss ya...

God Bless...
My heart goes out to Jim, Jo, Jason, Jessica, Jamie, and James"
Amanda Whitehurst of Parkston, South Dakota

"old jeremy, u where a quite soldier when i first met u in our platoon but u were always a motivated troop that always did what was told without complaining. It sucked that u couldnt stay with us in the 1-501st airborne and had to go back to ur stryker unit up north to deploy for iraq. I wear on arm band in your honor jeremiah."

"I had the privilege of spending 11 months in Afghanistan with this extraordinary guy. He never had anything but a smile on his face and a laugh to share. A great soldier and an even better friend. You are truly missed Boomer. I'll see you when I see you buddy. I know you're in a far better place. Peace"
