5 years

Here is my middle son, Jeffrey, in the summer of 2006. He was on vacation with his mom and brother - Cape Cod, I believe. I'd brought him the Princeton Lacrosse tee-shirt while at a conference that spring. A few months later Jeff died. That was five years ago today. I miss him. It has been a long five years. His friends have been leaving sweet, funny, revealing posts on the Face Book page they set up right after he died. They, his friends, are mostly young adults now, and their updates remind me of all the experiences and events Jeff missed. Have I said I miss him? That would only be every single day. I love you Jeff.
