09.02.09 | RIP Jeremy Lusk


Our friend Alve found the right words: "Jeremy has not passed the trauma of the fall and died. This thing leaves me bewildered and shocked, I can not and I do not want to believe this, but unfortunately it is. This makes me think of what we do with all of us love and sacrifice, but one day everything ends without an explanation. We respect the great gift that we all, remember our friend Jeremy and accompany with our prayers so that he can stay where it is better to them now and watch over us. Thanks Jeremy for the emotions and the joy you've given, rest in peace, you will always be with us in our hearts."
