Thank you for welcoming us so warmly when we returned to Saratoga three years ago. The congregation has been deeply important to Jeremy, and central to his spiritual life. As a way of giving back to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Saratoga Springs we have established a Memorial Fund in Jeremy’s name. We have asked family and friends and now fellow congregants who would like to do so, to make a donation to this Fund.

Another way to contribute is by text to 518-333-9140. In the message area type the dollar amount of your donation followed by “Jeremy”.
Jeremy spoke frequently of wanting to remain a part of this community. Perhaps this Memorial Fund will help keep his memory alive.
From an earlier UUCSS post:
Before Jeremy passed, several people asked if he could share his insights more widely, so we began hosting a blog page called “Jeremy Reflections: Discovering Grace at Life’s End.” In what Jeremy posted there before his passing, he shared how “the manner that I have been given to die is turning out to be a blessing.” And he shared a story of a beautiful moment of insight starting with a bird’s song that led him to an experience of the world, the cosmos, as “a greater evolving harmony.”

Jeremy faced this end of life time with a great deal of courage and grace, and had been sharing his insights with friends and after services on Sunday mornings.
Jeremy, you inspired harmony in those around you and in this congregation, and we are grateful. And that harmony, evolving, will not fade.
