Samuel Jeremy Alpern was born on February 1, 1972. He was the beloved son of Janice and David Cantor and big brother to Aviva Cantor. For much of his life, he was cared for by Pat Parker, whose family considered him one of their own. Though Jeremy’s physical abilities were limited, his ability to inspire others was as strong as ever. Jeremy’s smile shone for miles, and his enthusiasm was contagious. He loved being surrounded by music, action, noise, and of course, food. He loved blowing kisses and laughing at funny noises. Jeremy had a life expectancy of 3-5 years, and he passed away on February 25, 2013 at the age of 41. His life was a blessing, and every day he spent with us was a miracle worth celebrating. His memory will forever be an inspiration for us all.
