Jeremy Janz

Several years ago I attended Northland Baptist Bible College. Even though I only attended Northland for one school year, it was always one of my favorite years of college life. I met several great people while I was there, friends that I will never forget, and one of them was, a guy named Jeremy Janz.

Jeremy would come by our room every night on his rounds, making sure the lights were out and such, and he would end up staying in our room way too long. It usually started with the telling of a story or two, Jeremy always had the best stories, and then before you knew it, he had been in there for over an hour.

After I left Northland, I think it was the summer of '94, I heard through the grapevine that Jeremy had been in an accident. All that I knew was that he was in a coma. As the years went by I would hear about him from time to time. And then the other day, mostly in relation to the Terry Schiavo situation, a friend e-mailed me this link, A Letter to Jeremy.

Even if you don't know who Jeremy Janz is, I think that you will find this article very interesting.
