Virgil? you may ask...
Well, Virgil is Jeremy's Grandfather's name.
After Jeremy's father left when he was just a baby, his mom and his siblings moved back into her childhood home where Jeremy's grandfather Virgil, along with his Grandma, began to supply for their needs.
He supplied a home for them, food on the table, clothes, and schooling.
He supplied direction and training, offering them a strong father figure and developing a rich work ethic in him and his brother on the farm.
He supplied love, encouragement, and affection for a growing boy.
But more than anything he supplied a Godly model for what a man should be...a man full of conviction and faith in his Savior.
He supplied priceless spiritual training by mouth and by example.
He is everything we want out son to be.
Jon? Yes, it's J O N, not John. It is after Jeremy's brother Jonathan.
Jon and Jeremy are just 19 months apart and act like they shared a womb, not just a bedroom :)
Jon's and Jeremy's best friend... and always will be.
We're struggling a little with a nick name. We do want to call him Virgil, but we'd like a shortened more casual name to use also.
Virg? Sadie calls him baby Virg.
V? I kinda like that.
I'm sure something will develop :)
