Yesterday, we paddled out for Jer, with Jer, at his favorite surf spot in Santa Cruz, Rockview.
We didn't say goodbye, because we will see Jer again on the other side.
It was a beautiful tribute to our friend, our loved one. The sun was shining and the ocean was calm. We held hands and shared our love for Jer, before releasing his physical presence to the ocean he loves so much.
Jeremy Montes, Jr. lived every day to the fullest and never let anything stand in the way of him and his goals and dreams. He endured much and maintained a positive attitude through his darkest days.
His spirit lives on in our daily words and actions. When we face challenges with relentless determination, pursue our dreams with passion, and give real hugs, we Live Like Jer.
The outpouring of love and support to Jer and his family over the last two years means so much and will never be forgotten.
Through generosity shown by friends, family, and friends we've yet to meet, Jer's family was able to spend countless days by his side in the hospital. Without your support on the donation site, this would not have been possible.
As you know the gift of time with those we love is the greatest gift of all.
Thank you so very much.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
