Jeremy and Kelly, words fail me. To say that you have my most sincere and respectful condolences doesn't even come close.

Comment #4 - Posted by: Matt G. at July 18, 2006 4:27 PM

Words can't express the emotions surrounding an event like this.

I'm deeply sorry for your loss.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Timbo at July 18, 2006 4:28 PM

Anything I could say would be merely an echo of previous posts. With two kids of my own I can hardly imagine an event that would effect me deeper.

I wish you whatever peace you may be able to find at this time.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Jesse Woody at July 18, 2006 4:34 PM

Our prayers go out to your family. I for one will hold my two little angels extra tight tonight.


The most unnature thing ever is for a parent to bury a child.

Word can even express the deepest sorrow...

Comment #7 - Posted by: Earl at July 18, 2006 4:34 PM

From my wife, Pam, and myself, our sincerest prayers and best wishes are with Jeremy's family.

Comment #8 - Posted by: Matt Munson at July 18, 2006 4:36 PM

I cannot, simply cannot, fathom the idea of losing my son. It hurts me to think of Jeremy's family in this instance.

To Jeremy's family, my family and I wish you all the best love and condolences during this dark time. I am so sorry. Best wishes to you in the present and fond memories to you all in the future.

I have lost a child too, and no one should ever have to endure that pain. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Kelly and Jeremy, our prayers are with you. May the Peace of the L-rd comfort you.

Comment #15 - Posted by: doug at July 18, 2006 5:15 PM

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family.
He must have been an angel that God needed sooner rather than later.
We will do this workout at our next CFKids class here in Rockford in honor of Jeremy.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Sue Ady at July 18, 2006 5:16 PM

Please accept my family's deepest condolences for a loss and heartbreak that cannot be ever imagined by anyone else.


I Did Not Die:

Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry.
I am not there. I did not die.

Kelly and Jeremy,

My most sincere condolences. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during these hard days and nights.

God bless you little one.

One of my relatives wrote this and posted it in Little Jeremy's online guestbook:

He left this world way too soon
On the 6th day of July
Our Lord above called him home
And we are left to wonder why

Little Jeremy was only three
When he walked through Heaven’s door
Jesus was there to greet him
And swung him off the floor

Both were laughing gaily
As Jesus held his little hand
Jeremy’s laughter getting louder
As through Heaven’s garden they ran

Motorcycles & fire trucks
Sports and army toys galore
Were all spread out to play with
Right there on Heaven’s floor

He smiled and waved at relatives
He had never met
Getting hugs & kisses from all of them
And embracing animals he stopped to pet

His little eyes opened wide
As he looked around in awe
Even at this tender age
He understood just what he saw

Heaven wasn’t just a dream
Or something that you felt
He knew he’d live forever now
As at Jesus’ side he knelt

He felt his little heart
Burst with love and all that’s good
And if he could come back to you
He knew now he never would

For nothing could prepare him
For the sight he did behold
The walls were lined with shiny stars
And all the streets were paved with gold

There were angels playing harps
As they sang their Heavenly song
They were dancing merrily beside him
As they guided him along

And straight ahead the most brilliant light
Beckoning him to come
He didn’t hesitate a second
He just began to run

Straight into his Master’s arms
Where he’d never be alone
And Jeremy knew right then and there
He had finally made it home

And what a Home he’ll have
With our Lord above
Who took Jeremy in his loving arms
And wrapped him in His love

Your son may not be with you
On this earth anymore
But one day you’ll be together
When you walk through Heaven’s door

You’ll miss your baby’s smiling face
Until the very end of time
But he left behind a love so great
It’ll pass on down the line

Jeremy was loved by all of you
More than words can ever say
But the Lord loved him so much more
That’s why he couldn’t stay

He took his seat beside Him
He’ll help to pave the way
So that you may one day join him
When the Lord says that you may

Thank you to everyone for their kind words, there are very tough times ahead and being part of such a wonderful community helps tremendously.

Very special thanks to Lynne Pitts, The Glassman's and The Martin's for everything they've done.

-The Bloniasz family

Tears have welled up so big.....it's very hard to write. I almost didn't post, because I don't know what to say (I still don't).....I am so sorry for you Jeremy and Kelly. I have two of my own who just got hugged very tightly, and don't yet understand why, or why Daddy was sad, but they don't have to. Look for peace when/where you can find it, and cling to each other for support. This community is here for you!

Something like this puts everything in perspective. Today, I'm going to give my kids an extra kiss. I look forward to the day when they are old enough to do Jeremy's workout. On that day, I will have a very special story to tell them about a very special boy that I wish I had the chance to have met. My family and I will be praying for Jeremy and his family. May God bless you.

Kelly and Jeremy,

Families are forever. You will see your little one again someday. It will be tough for you and those he left behind here, but for him it will be but a moment and he will greet you in eternity with open arms. This is my humble faith. Until then we will remember you always in our prayers.

Love,

Joe and Linda Hamilton

I will warm up with Jeremy tomorrow before I catch up on the past couple of days' WODs.

Comment #53 - Posted by: robp at July 18, 2006 7:42 PM

My young cousin died a few years ago...hit by a car while bike riding. It was a terrible tragedy for our entire family.

But I remember hearing something at the funeral...he'll have the great joy of spending eternity as a boy! Always running and playing, having fun.

God bless the Blaniasz family and know that your son will be smiling forever at the banquet in heaven.

My prayers go out to the Bloniasz family. I am 16 and have 2 nieces (4 years old and 9 months old), and it would break my heart if anything ever happened to them. I can't imagine losing a child and pray I never experience it. God bless your family.

Comment #72 - Posted by: jon whittington at July 18, 2006 9:04 PM

I am truly saddened to see such a beautiful, happy child such as this, taken away without a chance to experience more of this world.
I think of my own 3 year old son, sleeping in his bed right now, and I cannot fathom not having him around.
Were there words to bring peace and understanding, I would not hesitate to speak them... but I know none that will other than this simple thought:
Never forget the laughter, the tears, the hugs, and those moments of joy that you brought to him in his life. For if we are all that we hear, feel, see and experience, I am sure that his life, though short, was filled with wonder.
My deepest sympathies.

The biggest fear any parent has is outliving their children, it certainly is mine. I cannot imagine what you must be going through and, with three of my own all under the age of 7, I honestly do not know how I could even go on living.

Please, if you read this, know how much everyone on this list weeps for you, prays for you and honors Jeremy in life and in his untimely passing.

Life can be so cruel and unfair sometimes.....

Kelly and Jeremy,

With tears in my eyes, I showed Jeremy's picture to my four year old daughter, Lily, and explained as best I could, his passing.

She asked "Would I have liked to play with him?"

Judging from those beautiful big eyes and cheeky smile I replied "I'm sure you would."

Jeremy, rest in peace, you beautiful boy.

Kelly and Jeremy,

I'm very sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how must feel. It is always the saddest thing in humanity when parents outlive their children. This is not how it is supposed to be.

Know that Jeremy is in a better place, a place that we will all go someday to join those we've all lost too soon. Take comfort in knowing that thousands are thinking praying for you right now that God gives you both strength and peace.

Sincerely,

Dennis

My wife and I are at a loss for words. Nothing can come close to soften the pain. This will be a the next routine for my son in honor of Jeremy. Your family will be in our prayers.

Comment #102 - Posted by: tirzah at July 19, 2006 5:33 AM

I did not really know much of life and the World until I became a parent.

My little ones taught me the true essence of life:
- How wonderful and magical it all is and so are we.
- The true essence of love - to feel as if your soul is wrapped in another.
- The meanining of compasion - to feel their pain as your own and to see your child's tears in some far away face on the other side of the globe.
- To know true joy by witnessing perfect happiness in another.
- The pride you feel in helping someone begin their journey.
- A sense of responsibility and purpose that drives you to become a better person.
- The overwhelming sense of fear and panic in the core of your being when things do not go as planned.
- The feeling of helplessness when the world flies apart and the future is crushed and you can only stand witness.
- The true meaning of pain, sorrow and loss.
- That time does not heal all wounds but it does slowly allow the pain to become less sharp.
- That time moves on and so must I, somehow...

To young Jeremy, my Jessy and my brother Dan - I have nothing to offer you except this tear and these few feeble words. You left too soon.

To Jeremy's family and friends I can only pray for time to allow some healing to your wounds. The scars will last forever and the pain will always be there. May the joy, magic and love that Jeremy brought remain to brighten your world and teach us all.

My sincere and respectful condolences. May you find comfort and strength in each other in this most difficult of times.

Peace and love to all.

Jeremy and Kelly,

I couldn't begin to imagine what you both are going through at this time. My wife and I have a three year old as well and I am unable to grab him and hold him close for the next 2 months.

Know that we ("Team Tikrit" in Iraq) are thinking of you and I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. We wish you hope in this time of sorrow and comfort during your time of pain. A heartfelt sympathy from all of us!!

At first I wondered of the child on the swing, delightful, glowing, and reality struck like a maple switch. This child is gone, and I thought, dear God, how? There will never be a worthy answer...

Pain, anguish, despair are only words that man has coined in meek attempt to convey the reality of loss. I will ask God to be merciful by keeping them at bay until you are ready to face them, and also his hand that heals while you face the ugliness of such a terrible loss.

yesterday we get news a friend, most of us don't know, has suffered the unimagineable tragedy of the loss of a child. I was denied maybe my only chance to father a child due to a miscarriage and due to unusual circumstances I was not included in the condolence process. This morning I get the news of the passing of a friend who I had loss touch with, as we so often do. My heart is heavy on probably the worst resy day in crossfit history.

In honor of Jeremy his workout in 4:07 using a 12 lbs bar in place of broomstick since couldn't locate a broomstick at my gym. It is a kick ass workout for I'm sure a kick ass kid.

RIP Jeremy and Juan

I was going to post this on the forum, but it didn't feel right. I'll do it here.

I don't think people who haven't experienced it know just how PHYSICAL profound grief is. It's not something you think. It's like ink spilled in clear water, or lead suddenly pumped into every muscle of your body. You find yourself staring at the wall, not remembering what it was you were trying to do. Forming thoughts is hard, and when you try to sleep it doesn't work, and if you dream you have crazy dreams. It's not uncommon to think you are going insane. You cry without meaning to, or knowing you were going to. You feel stuck in an eternal moment.

Your task right now is just covering time. Get through days, and sleep as well as you can at night. It is not necessary to be able to imagine going on in order to go on. And you are already on a path of healing. Although there will be moments when it all comes back, overall things will get better from here on out. Remember that things change in time, even though you cannot imagine anything changing. Have faith.

Jeremy, if you are a CrossFitter, you are tough, and I'm going to tell you something you likely already know: you will never see the world in quite the same way again, or feel the same way. You can't stay where you were. You will either go forward or backwards.

In my view, the best way to fight the anger and the knot in your stomach is to serve others. Give what you don't have to give, and you will find the springs miraculously replenished. It may sound impossible, but perhaps a few years from now you might be an excellent grief counselor.

In this life, I feel sometimes that we suffer more from not having a recipient for our love, than from not receiving enough love. Children accept and thrive from what we offer, and this increases our own happiness.

A gap has been created in your life, which in some respects can never be filled. Yet, that same love you were pouring into your child is not gone. It is still there. It is just frozen in the ice of your pain. Over time, it will thaw, and your future happiness--which you can't imagine now--will depend on using it for good.

heart breaking, praying,
God is a Waymaker - praying for a way to be made where there is no way for this family,
God is Shalom - Peace - not as the world gives but as only He can, praying for the peace of God,
Oh Lord shine your comfort and joy on this family,
Ps 21 3
You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—length of days, for ever and ever. 5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 Surely you have granted him eternal blessings
and made him glad with the joy of your presence.

Everyday I hold my little girl tightly and hope that I can protect her from all the misfortunes in this world. Tonight and for everynight in the future that she will let me hold her, I will hold her a little bit tighter and say a prayer for your family. I can not even begin to feel the pain that you must be going through.

Comment #177 - Posted by: photoman at July 19, 2006 2:14 PM

As a father of four, I can only imagine your pain and admire your strength as I doubt I could be so strong should any of my children predecease me.

I read of your tragic loss last week and had it in mind as my family visited Legoland on Friday. Not once did my little ones escape my sight and I did everything, everything, they wanted me to do. I felt I owed it to them in Jeremy's memory.

Not being a religious man, I can only reiterate what I said before: God, in whatever form you believe him to be, can be found in your child's eyes. Look for him there.

One last thing and I'm sure it may not be popular with all, but here goes; Each year in O.C., we deal with several child drownings, all tragic. Each under circumstances similar to those that claimed Jeremy. In light of these events, I want to urge every parent to get their toddlers water safety trained now. We did it for all of our children and can only surmise that it has made them well aware of the potential dangers of the water. I'm sure the Bloniasz family would agree.

God speed, Jeremy.

Do not the most moving moments in our lives leave us without words? Certainly the pain and the sympathy we all feel for Jeremy's family does. Know we all as a CrossFit family have you in our thoughts and would take away a part of your pain by sharing it with you. Hold tightly to the beautiful memories you do have. They are the essence of Jeremy, they are yours forever.

Kelly and Jeremy-

Losing a child is life's cruelest blow - I've been there before, and if it's any consolation, the change in perspective it can bring is a legacy worth sustaining. I for one pay attention to the daily miracles that emerge from the seemingly small details of life, and am wiser for the experience.

Lean on your friends, family and spirituality - they're there for you now.

I have a son of my own, though I can't hold him for another couple months. Soon I will have a daughter to hold and love as well. To lose a child is a pain I cannot fathom. Kelly and Jeremy my deepest condolences go out to you. My prayers go up for you and your family. May G-d's peace fill your hearts and heal your pain. Like someone else posted before, if part of the pain I feel for you can help ease your burden, then I too, gladly bear up under it.

The next time I fly over these desert sands, helping this people find freedom I will remember little Jeremy; I will think of how he has wings of his own now and flies free with the angels. Now I'm on my way out to do this workout in his honor.

You will be missed little one. I hold my children closer in thoughts and prayers today.

My heart just went to pieces when I read the post and saw Jeremy's picture. I am so sorry for your loss :(

Jeremy & Kelly,
I have been at a loss, in words and actions, ever since I read about this in the paper. As a father of a two year old, I can not even begin to express my sorrow for you all. I remember the one opportunity I had to train with you and young (and old) Jeremy whoopin' me at running. No one deserves this pain, especially your family. Our deepest sympathy,
Dan, Christine & Ethan

Dear Jeremy and Kelly,

God loves you two dearly, and he loves little Jeremy more than you will ever know!

Through this turmoil and agony, little Jeremy is already a blessing to us all. Why? Because, through him, we have become closer as a CrossFit family, closer to our Lord as we pray, and closer to you both as we grieve with you. Our God is a god of relationships!

Oh what a blessing Jeremy has become.

Please read "Suprised by Joy", by C.S. Lewis (yes, the same author who wrote "The Chronicles of Narnia"), who shares his struggle with God over the loss of his wife, Joy, and the eventual return of "joy" in his life.

Prayerfully,

Ron

What a beautiful child.

His sweet soul has been set free, as yours will be soon enough.

Your time apart will be, in the grand scheme, only a moment.

Hold on to your love. Soon it shall be born anew.

I had my Friday night submission grappling class do this one to honor Jeremy.

Again, my prayers are with Jeremy and his family.
