The epitome of true joy, Jeremy lit up a room with his big smile, belly laughs and patty cakes.
He was perfect in every way that matters and lived a life that was an example to all of us to
enjoy all of life’s blessings, big and small. He was truly too good for this earth. He spent his life
side by side with his Mom being spoiled with all his favorite foods, toys and loved ones. His role
as an uncle, son, brother, cousin, nephew and friend is a testament to his loving spirit. Everyone
smiled a little bigger when they were around him.

Brock) Davis, Ashley (husband Jon) Watkins, brother Stephen Thurman; nieces Carmen and
Scarlett and nephews Silas and Corbin; uncles Gary Haggard, Mark Haggard, Greg (wife Gail)
Haggard, Tony Thurman, aunt Sharon (husband Brian) Wagaman; aunts, Jeannette Lee, Paulette (Don) DeBoard, Sheila Winchester and Connie Ward; grandparents Wanda and Odean
Thurman, and best friend Suza Kline; many cousins, friends, nurses and caregivers.
