I’ve known Jeff for nearly half my life.
We started marking books together 20 years ago!
Since then our paths have always been intertwined. Lately it’s been from a distance, but I’ve always keep my eye on him much like a son keeps an eye on what his crazy dad is doing from a respectable distance.
As many people close to him know, we’ve had a pretty volatile relationship.
Many times we argued and even nearly came to punches - Jeff was one of the most infuriating persons I’ve ever met. Stubborn, outspoken and always spoiling for a fight.
But of course, in describing Jeff I realize I’m describing myself.
Adrianna and I used to joke that he was my ‘fantasy dad’.
But this is how I actually grew to think of him.
I’m very sad that he is dead.
