On the 7th ericalynn posted a tribute to a very close friend who died of an an aneurysm, suddenly, inexplicably. He was about to get married. He had just turned 30. He had just become a father.
This takes me back to one of the most touching tributes I’ve ever seen on the web: The Life of Jos Claerbout. 25 years old and judging from his site, had an impact on everyone around himself – by being a good soul.
Even the shortest of lives can leave us with mission and warm heart.
Who and how we touch one another is what lives on past us.
I just noticed this now, and I don’t know how you ever found my site, but I thank you so much for reading it and posting about my tribute to Jeremy.
I wanted to let you know that I put up a site shortly after his death, as a tribute to him. It contains many, many pictures and stories from his friends and family and people he’s known throughout his short life. It’s located at http://www.jeremyland.net if you are interested in seeing it.
Monday, March 1, would have been his 31st birthday.
