Jeremy Camp and Melissa dated for four months and then spent some time apart. But things changed and Jeremy received a call that Melissa, age 20 at the time, was in the hospital and had just received the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Several months later when she was feeling better, they got married. When they got back from their honeymoon, Melissa started having stomach problems. The doctor then gave them the dreaded news that she only had a few months to live, and she passed away on Feb. 5, 2001.  I cannot imagine how hard that would be.  Jeremy wrote this beautiful, passionate song after Melissa’s death.

The story’s like A Walk To Remember.

I love this song. I did not know that about Jeremy Camp… How tragic.

[…] After losing Melissa, Jeremy Camp realized what’s really important in this life. He said, “Music is not my life. Christ is my life. The only thing that really matters is what we do for Jesus on this Earth, and as a result of what I’ve been through, I express even more the goodness of God and how faithful He is.” (0) Comments    Read More    Post a Comment […]

That is so sad but a blessing to us all that he wrote the song.
