Goodbye Jeff

It's hard to say goodbye to someone only 42 and in love with life. He was a joker and gentleman and an altruistic person all wrapped up in a guy that was born to be a teacher. This picture was taken at Halloween when he borrowed the tiara from a student costume and he taught class the rest of the period wearing it. I'll miss you, Jeff.

He was so excited that he was going to teach an honors section of World Geography next year. Jeff had plans for the future and was the consumate Georgia fan. Despite the goofy tiara above he was a MANLY man, and very considerate and kind. He was engaged to be married again after seven years of loneliness. He'd been engaged only five days when whatever happend, happened.

Today was his wake.

So sad. I hope the school provides some help for the kids, doesn't leave it to you to deal with on top of your own feelings. So much stress.
