This is a temporary page dedicated to my critically ill son, Jeremy Morse, with information about contacts and events.
For more information about Jeremy, visit

We are incredibly appreciative and thankful for all of the love, care, support, and encouragement of family, friends, and strangers, and Catonsville community who are supporting us through this very difficult time.

Jeremy went home to his Heavenly Father on the afternoon of June 8, 2008 after a two month battle for survival.  He fought hard and we are very proud of him, forever!  We will miss him but he will never be forgotten!


Red Cross Blood Drive
Monday, December 1, 2008
1- 7 p.m.
Christ Lutheran Church
5700 Edmondson Avenue
Catonsville, MD. 21228
contact:  Amy Morse

We are looking for 50 donors.  There are time slots open every fifteen minutes throughout the day.  Please e-mail your top three choices of times and we will do our best to accomodate your request.  Also, include your telephone number where someone can reach you to offer a reminder call in the days before the drive.   The times start  at 1pm. then 1:15, 1:30, etc. . . every fifteen minutes ongoing throughout the day. (1pm -7 p.m.)   W will confirm the time with you by e-mail as soon as possible.  Please expect your total donation time to last approx. 1 1/2 hours.

We are also looking for volunteers to work the registration, canteen, and bake sale tables in two hour increments.
1-3, 3-5,  and 5-7 p.m.  If this interests you, please e-mail your preference of area and time.  Again, we will confirm by e-mail your assignment.

In addition, we need bakers to provide treats for the bake sale.  Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated.  Please plan to pre-price your donation ahead of time to save time the day of the sale.  Please e-mail to let us know of your intentions for the bake sale so I can be sure to have enough baked goods to sell on December 1st.  All proceeds from this sale will go directly to the non-profit foundation that we are setting up in Jeremy's memory.  We plan to use the funds from this foundation to provide "Rays of Sunshine" to those who need them, especially critically ill children and their families.

You may also make a direct donation to the American Red Cross in Jeremy's memory.

One last request.  We are asking others to share a short story with us about the ways in which Jeremy has impacted your life.  We think it would provide us a tremendous amount of comfort to read about the positive ways that our son changed the world, one heart at a time.  We may never know the ripple effects that will extend around us for years to come, but this is a good way to start.

As always, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your compassion, love, and generosity as we walk through this storm, trying to find our way without our precious son.  We can't change what happened to him, but we can change and make a difference in the lives of others who need and are desperate for our help.
