Fast Boat

My name is Jeremy Micheal Donovan and I am 40 years old, I was born on June 1st, 1977, in Alex Bay, New York. I was not a good kid in school, I was a wise ass and did not care about my grades. So I've worked construction my whole life.

 I married Theresa Marie McCartha, who is a great mother to my kids. She has always let me do the things I wanted to do, she never bitches "too bad" about my hunting, snowmobiling, and the stupid stuff I do. In a nutshell she is a great mother, friend, and wife. I also have a beautiful daughter named Koral Autumn Donovan who is 14, beautiful, funny, smart, and is an awesome kid who I love with all my heart.

Now the sad part of this story and the reason why I am doing this is I had a 16 year old son named Keegan Ashton Donovan, he committed suicide on March 6th, 2017. I don't want to go into details but it's the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with. Two days after his death he came to me in a dream and told me to build Theresa and Koral a new house which I started in April, 2017, and got the driveway in, power, and foundation done until I ran out of money.

In another dream Keegan told me to take him to Alaska by boat which is a very, very hard task. So I've got a 25 foot Sea Ray and I'm taking my son's ashes to Alaska, and I'm going to put him on a spot overlooking the Pacific Ocean. My boat is called Fast Boat
which has two meanings. The first is father and son together, the second is fathers against suicidal thoughts. 95% of the people I know think i'm crazy, but no one will stop me because it's my son's last wish I can do for him.

I love my kids so much I'd do anything for them. My wife and I work our butts off just to live. I've worked my whole life, I never asked anyone for anything for free, but I think there are still good people in this country. I'm taking my boy to see it by boat.

So if ANY teenagers who are thinking those thoughts and you don't want to talk to your parents or some stuck up doctor, please, please call the Fast Boat with my number (315) [phone redacted]. Life is worth it so please follow me on Facebook to watch my journey and go on this adventure with me and my son. If you want to help go to my go fund page, thank you so much and remember to be kind to someone and help them in any way you can. It will make you feel better. God Bless America. Our troops be safe.
