    Dad had faith like Noah, Abraham, Job and many faithful witnesses of Jehovah. Solid examples for us to imitate. We the family are eager as we wait for Jesus to say to Pops “Jeremiah come out” as he did Lazarus. See you soon dad🤍🖤

        Jeremiah lived as faithful servant of God and imitated faithful servants in the bible. He also put faith in God’s word the bible John 5:28-29 where he firmly believed in the resurrection.
