A memorial will be held on December 7 at 11AM at the United Church of Ferndale, 2034 Washington St, Ferndale, WA with Reverend Bobbi Virta. We are having a potluck at the memorial and would greatly appreciate anything you would like to bring.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to Jeremiah’s wife Chelsey & their 4 children. Jeremiah did not have life insurance so they will need enough money to pay the rent and bills for at least 3 months until they can get on their feet again. Every little bit helps.
Donations can be given at the memorial or on the gofundme on Facebook
