Jeremiah “Jem” James Dickerman was born on October 21st, 2018 at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, MA, he lived for five beautiful days and passed away unexpectedly in his mother’s arms surrounded by family on October 25th, 2018.
He had a peaceful birth at 31 weeks 4 days and was impressive for his gestational age. He scored a 10 on his apgar test even though he was premature. He weighed 4lbs 1 oz and was 17 inches long. Everyone who met him was impressed by his numbers and strength. After being brought to the NICU he only needed Cpap (room air) for his lungs, which again was beyond impressive for his gestational age.
Jeremiah loved snuggling with his mom and dad and preferred to be on his belly with his arms above his head or by his face. He was loved dearly by everyone and will never be forgotten by his family, friends, doctors, nurses or community.
Although his life here on earth was short, it was filled with meaning for years to come.
Jeremiah is survived by his mother, Ashley Dickerman, his father, Jonathan Dickerman Sr., and his big brother, Jonathan Dickerman Jr. He is also survived by his grandparents, Joyce Lawson, James Mirabile, Brenda Mirabile, Theresa Dickerman, and Steven Dickerman. His Aunts and Uncles, Regina Fitzgerald, Alyssa Mirabile, Jessica McFarland, Jeffrey McFarland, Stephanie Madore, and Jason Madore. His cousins, Seamus McFarland and Owen McFarland. In addition, he is survived by the entire community that was created on his journey here to earth. As long as the good people of this world continue to reach out to one another he is alive in all of us.
His parents would like to personally invite you to his public service at St. Albert the Great Parish in Weymouth, MA on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at 10a.m.
