Jeff and I actually met in 1994 through mutual friends. We started dating in 1996, moved in together in 1997, and got married in 1998. Jeff was a very active person until Stanford University let him go in 2004, always ready to give his two girls a kiss when he got home from work.
For the last few years I took care of him, trying to get him to eat and walk
around. By the time of his last illness he couldn't do much of anything by himself. His daughter, Beth, and I will miss him very much.
