Jules and family,
My condolences on the passing of your brother Jeremy. He was a couple of months younger than my son Wesley, and I had the privilege of coaching him on the fastball team representing Calgary at the Alberta Summer games back in about 2012.
It is so true that he was a natural athlete. He would swing at almost any pitch regardless of whether it was in the strike zone or not. Normally, I would get mad at a player for swinging at a ball outside the strike zone, but more often than not, Jeremy would hit it! How could I get mad at a player that just got a hit? He was always soft spoken and respectful which I appreciated about him.
I’m saddened we lost Jeremy at such a young age. The Robert Munsch quote “like you for always, love you forever” is a good one. It applies not only to his family and friends, but his coaches, teachers and anyone who came into contact with him.
p.s. My apologies if I misspelt your name. Jules? Juelz?
