“For those who held you in their hearts, Those you waved at on your strolls, For those who cried the tears they couldn’t hold back, Cos you are no more here.
For those who washed you when you were weak, Those who were scared to see you ill, For those who thought you madly stubborn cos you, Wouldn’t take another pill.
I salute them all, who shared you with me, Paying for your bills, Calling on others to give their dimes, I appreciate the toils and tears and All the memories you left for Them. Leaving only me.” She wrote
According to a report by Instablog, Jeremiah died on Saturday, January 29, 2021, after months of battling with Autoimmune blood tissue disorder.
