  2. Dearest Kate, we were lucky enough to speak to Jeff in the last weeks, telling him of how we were proud to be your friends for so long. Jeffers was a true gentleman and he did want to give you 32 years (in joke) Kate. He was well liked by those who knew him, and the two of you complemented each other so well. It is just not fair after he fought so valiantly to be there for you. Life is #### sometimes. We will be there in spirit on Friday, but as we told you both we are going away for a while. Sending our love and hugs to get through the day/days ahead. We will be there for you when we get home. Love from us both, as we have said to you kiss.

    There Is No Night Without A Dawning by Helen Steiner Rice

    There is no night without a dawning
    No winter without a spring
    And beyond the dark horizon
    Our hearts will once more sing…
    For those who leave us for a while
    Have only gone away
    Out of a restless, care worn world
    Into a brighter day.

    Eternal Blessed rest Jeff. You will be dearly missed, but your legacy will live on in the heart and mind of everyone touched by your presence. +
