I woke up this morning and wanted to say
I feel so alive and free from my pain
I have no more worries, I have no more fears
And everyone here is just as sincere
We laugh and we joke til it's time to lie down
For tomorrow is actually promised in this town
Though I still kind of wonder how all of you feel
I know that my passing is very unreal
But if it's any comfort, I want you to know
I have a new home and a motorcycle
I ride with the angels who look just like me
so loving, so cool, that's me - Jeremy.
Mom if you hear me I'm blowing you kisses
and Nicki I'm granting your holiday wishes.
Dad I salute you, thanks for your love
If you close your eyes, you'll feel my "bear hug."
Sarah and your girls you completed my world
My diamonds. my stars, my jewels and my pearls
I didn't realize my time was so close
I would have made sure we had our last toast
But God had just told me that had I stayed
I would have missed my spot in the shade
So he quickly called on me so that I could see
what it's like to be an angel, I'm home, I'm free.
Thanks for the memories that all of you made
Be nice to each other, I'll see you again.
Jeremy R. Haywood's spirit.
Jeremy Haywood was a very passionate person, holding those dear to him and the things he loved SO close to his heart. The first to offer a helping hand and the last to say anything disrespteful, Jeremy was a VERY special man who deeply touched the lives of everyone he knew. Born and raised here on the Peninsula, Jeremy grew to develope a passion for riding. The skill he possesed was great and he knew the limits. I really wish we had more footage to share as proof to his awesome skill. Beyond his amazing skill to ride though, Jeremy possessed so much more. I don't believe the friends and family he left behind will ever heal from the pain of losing him. Jeremy will be VERY dearly missed. To remember him and his passions is to honor him. We love you and miss you Jeremy.
