4 Years Ago Today…

•July 19, 2014 • Leave a Comment

This Week....

Four years ago today an Angel called a 16 year old Boy named Jeremy Gomez home.

He had had a very difficult few months … first needing a liver transplant then finding he had leukemia.

He went from a happy, very involved teen in Early march to laying in a bed in a hospital in South Florida, surrounded by family and friends.



Jeremy loved Music and Things Purple and participating in ‘educational’ videos.


A few Thoughts


Death came in the silence of the night

a knock sending fear to the bone

He came looking for me alone

his ride had only room for one.

Better to leave this place,

and live now Forever.

Stand not at my grave and weep

For I’m the wind that stirs your soul

Look not for me for I’m not there

I’m the glint in flakes of snow

I’m the cool shower on April morn

In the hush of nights silent air

I’m the rush that that fills your soul

Stand not at my grave and weep

For I’m not dead

I’m with you at your side

When you feel the wind blow

I’m the sweet uplifting rush.

Look to the north

I’m the Glimmering star

Cry not for me

for I’m eternally yours.

Happy 20th Jeremy!

Happy 20th Jeremy!!


Twenty years ago today a child was born who brought all of the normal joys and challenges of being a boy to his parents.  He made them very happy at times and at others .. not so much.  Typical for a growing boy.  

As he grew, he developed a love of music and learned to play some instruments.  He was even good enough to play in his school band.  

He had a huge smile that effected everyone who met him.  He loved to travel and be with his friends.  He was very popular.  

A short time after his 16th birthday.. that all changed.  After a brief illness he lost a short fight with leukemia.  Everything seemed to happen so fast.  One day a vibrant teen in high school … then he was gone!

We are approaching the fourth anniversary of that horrible event.

His Family and Friends are remembering him and that time.  


Today he would have been 20.   



PVA and 2013 National Veterans Wheelchair Games

•June 28, 2013 • 1 Comment

Tampa has a huge sporting event coming July 13-18. But No one is taking any interest in it. The only Sport organization to support it is the Yankees. Not ONE local team is. It’s the 33rd National Veterans Wheelchair Games. They need all of the support they can get and can use volunteers.  They will bring thousands of visitors to the area for almost two weeks.  These are Disabled Veterans and deserve our help and care.  images
