A tribute to Jeremy on the third anniversary of his passing by Jennifer Altamont.

Someday you will be faced with reality of loss. And as life goes on, days rolling into nights, it will become clear that you never really stop missing someone special who is gone, you just learn to live around the gaping hole of their absence when you lose someone you can not imagine living without, your heart breaks wide open, and the bad news is you never completely get over the loss and you will never forget them.

However, in a backwards way, this is also the good news. They will live on in the warmth of your broken heart that doesn’t fully heal back up and you will continue to grow and experience life, even with your wound. It’s like badly breaking an ankle that never heals perfectly and that sill hurts when you dance but you dance anyway with a slight limp and this limp just adds to the depth of your performance and the authenticity of your character. The people you lose remain a part of you.

Remember them and always cherish the good moments with them.”

Jennifer Altamont, 11th Marchioness of Sligo.
