Special thanks to Dr. "Ted" Spooner, who saved his life with a double valve replacement to allow him to be in our lives precious additional months. Jeremy had tremendous zest for life and would want us to thank all his friends and business associates for adding to his abbreviated, but full and accomplished life.

A Celebration of Life service was held Tuesday June 12 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Navarre, with Pastor Loren Davis officiating. May he rest in pain-free peace. Memorials preferred to the Spondylitis Association of America.
