Jeremy was a fierce and loyal person and he always held those the closest to him the most accountable. He had many plans for the next year, and for the rest of his life.

The family wishes to thank the New Mexico State Police that assisted in Jeremy's recovery and made sure the family was notified and that his personal belongings were returned to them. These men and women put their lives on the line daily for us. God Bless. The family would also like to thank and commend the staff at Ballard Funeral Home for the excellent service, compassion and assistance ministered to us in a great time of shock and need.

There were many donations that are so appreciated. The out pour of friends, relatives and colleagues has been amazing. Thank you each and every one. These events never happen when all is well.
