Memoirs with Jeremy

It has been two years and eight months.....I have survived my son's physical departure.  Now I must live.....if I am to survive then I must make the most of what is left of my own personal journey.  Still, I survive as a Marine Mom, a mom and a grammy but I must learn to live for myself as well.  A new normal is has been evolving, a new me is growing and now it is time to make a life for myself.

May God, Energy, Source, Mother Nature, all our ascended masters, our angels and every source the Universe provided us be with those of us on this most challenging journey.  God be with those of you in your darkest hours and know you will survive - this will not pass but you learn to integrate a broken heart into a place of peace knowing that your beautiful child is in a much better place than we could ever imagine; a place of love that even surpasses our love for our beloveds.

Peace, strength and courage keep us sane; angels and our children keep us safe and the God and Spirit of all teach us on this path that we travel today and the rest of our physical lives on earth.

Proud Mom of Ssgt. Jeremy D. Smith, United States Marine Corps, 3-9-85- 4-6-11


  1. Dearest Sandra,
    Oh my goodness how i have had you in my thoughts and prayers... This is Lisa, who worked with Jeremy at Bennigans right before he left for the Marines. I'm still in such shock and get sick when i torture myself and look at anything that comes up on the internet about what happened to Jeremy. I have been so worried about you and am so grateful to be able to reach out to you this way. Jeremy truly was beautiful in every way and i am thankful to have ever known him and you as well.

I can't tell you how much it has meant to me for you to reach out......I have Jeremy's Bennigan's pin with the name Juan on it....I thought you might like to have it....
