Thank you for your continued support, prayers, and thoughts over the past months!

It has been almost one year since Jeremy passed away, and we still miss him terribly every day. However, we continually notice and pause to watch little things that catch our eyes during our daily lives... little things that remind us of him... and we smile again, if only for a few moments. 

In November 2013, to coincide with Veteran's Day, the Burkholder Family created the "Jeremy Burkholder Memorial Fund". Proceeds from this fund will help cover funeral expenses that still exist. All surplus funds will be used to maintain and expand the "living memorial" created in Jeremy's honor at Ridge Park, 3317 Ridge Avenue, Rockford, Illinois.

Thank you in advance for your kind donation!

The memorial fund was officially set up with the IRS as a tax-exempt "memorial or scholarship fund."
