Jeffrey danced into my life and then into my heart in my time at UCSD. He was a passionate multi sensory brilliant kind of ideal first love. We met at a bluegrass world music concert and danced until they kicked us out, we sang our hearts out in Gospel choir, went to countless concerts as writers and reps for College Scene Magazine, were inseparable and found ways to delight and surprise each other at BabyRock in TJ and concerts or yacht club events, he would surprise me with breakfast in bed and poetry and leave me singing messages on my answering machine. It was an old school kind of love. And I treasure having known him so well and having loved him and having been loved by him. He shared w me that he believed our mothers were in heaven dancing. And I feel better knowing he is with his gorgeous mom. Jeff brought joy and passion to so many and blessed us with his huge heart and multi sensory spirit of love. He will shine on in our hearts and live on. Come what May, I will love you until my dying day. God bless you always.
