Homer & Joyce Allman left a message on December 16, 2015:
Gary & Sharon, words could never express the heart break and loss your family is feeling. We are praying that God will lead you through this time. Gary @ Sharon words could never express the feelings that your family is experiencing at the lost of your son. We will never understand why these things happens, we only know that God has a plan for us from the time we are born until the time he takes us home to be with him. Thoughts and prayers for the family.
Lucinda tanner longo left a message on December 16, 2015:
We purchased embryos out of the Cinderella cow. When we showed the heifer calf at Harrisburg I was so impressed that Jeremy came over to see her and talk to us. A few years later my Mom and Dad stopped at the farm and enjoyed a wonderful visit with Jeremy and his Dad. From all of us at Nutmeg Acres are thoughts and prayers to all for a life taken far to soon.
Sharon and Fred Dodrill left a message on December 15, 2015:
Dear Sharon & Gary: While the loss of a loved one is never easy, it is most certainly the hardest when they are taken from us too soon. The recent loss of your son who has left us at such a youthful age is definitely in the category of those hard losses for which there is so painful a reminder of what might have been. Fred and I offer our sincere condolence and deepest sympathy on your loss. May the outpouring of sympathy, the kind acts of friends & family and the comfort in knowing that your loss is felt by many, help you through this difficult time. We ask for God's blessings on you both and that you find the courage and strength to move forward in peace and confidence and in knowing that his was a life well-lived. Again, we are both so very sorry for your loss; our prayers are with you both.

Rachael White Wilburn left a message on December 14, 2015:
I am extremely saddened by this news and wish to send my deepest condolences to the McDonald family. I have nothing but fond memories of Jeremy. He very much was like the big brother I never had when growing up on the McDonald family farm. He was never too busy to have us little ones tag along. Even though we would go years without seeing one another, he was always ready to greet us with a smile and a warm hello like no time had passed at all. This world would be a much better place if there were more Jeremys in it. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

We had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy and Gary through the purchase of some bulls. Jeremy has always gone the extra mile with constant contact to see how things were going.
