Daddy's Boy.

Today would have been Jeff's 48th birthday. It's hard to imagine that 18 birthdays that have come and gone as the kids approach the age he was when he left this world.

As friends and family know, we had our struggles, but the one constant was his love for his children. His gift to all of us is the zest for life he passed down to his son. As Steven grows into a man, there are echoes of his father's voice, his smile, and that twinkle in his eye that tell us Jeff is never truly gone.

His proudest moments were Steven's birth, Laura's adoption, and the day he pulled into a friend's driveway and overheard their kids refer to him as "Laura and Steven's Daddy".

Happy birthday, Daddy.
