Dear Editor,

Jeramy Ailes, man where do I begin, Jeramy and I were friends from freshmen year of high school. We got into some big trouble as young adolescences in high school. I remember the time when we had made a little smoke bomb and had lit it in the soda machine, but it just didn’t smoke, it exploded, creating havoc at the school and with our own parents. Boy we both freaked out and got scared, we were finally caught up to and we both got arrested. Man oh man, our parents were upset.

We had also had the time of our lives one Christmas vacation, Joel, Jeremy’s father took us on a fishing and snowboarding trip to South Lake Tahoe. Jeramy and I had never snowboarded before. It was our first time, and I am glad we did it together. On our way to Tahoe, we had so much fun. I remember we stopped to get gas somewhere far from home. Joel said “OK, guys let’s hit the road.” Then I shot back to Jeramy, “don’t hit it the ground to hard it might hurt!” Jeremy laughed so hard I thought he was going to pass out. Once we got to Tahoe, we went to the snow mountain and we were “TRYING” to get up the bunny slope. We couldn’t do it for the life of us, we kept falling down. We finally figured it out and got up and down the bunny slope a few times successfully and had moved on to the bigger slopes.

We were going down the big slope after a few runs and poor Jeramy had fallen face first in front of me and I was behind him going too fast and not knowing how to stop. I ran in to the back of his snowboard, and practically did a full front flip over him and off the side of the mountain. I was struggling to get out of the deep freezing snow and get back up on the trail. Jeramy didn’t know what happened. He kept going and was concerned to my whereabouts, I finally made it to the bottom of the slope and he asked what happened to me and after I was done with the story he laughed at me hysterically. The drive home was quiet. We were all tired and just listened to our CD players and slept

After that trip we had gradually drifted apart, but when we saw each other in random places we always said, “What’s up?” I was at work when I heard the news of Jeramy. I am sad to hear that our country had lost another hero in battle. We are all going to mourn his death, but we will always have our fond memories of him, and we will all laugh together again in time.
