April 30, 1968 – December 8, 2013


Jeff left us today with his best friend and me by his side. His passing was peaceful, as we all prayed it would be. I believe he waited for his dad, brother and aunt to visit. He will be sorely missed, but I am relieved for him that there are no more needles, no more chemo, no more puking his guts out.

I curled up in the bed next to him and I heard a small voice laugh at me and say “You know I’m not in there, right?” I just said, yeah, yeah, leave me alone. Humor me.

The kids are taking it as well as can be expected. The healing is beginning for us, as Jeff has completed his healing on the other side. Love you forever, honey.
