Slowly the hall filled up today. More seats were needed and put out for the steady stream of people who came in the door to pay their respects. So many familiar faces and lots of strange ones. Eventually the room grew quiet as everyone found a seat or stood in the back and his Dad walked up front and said through tears "Thank you all so very much for coming today. It means a great deal. I didn't realize Jeff had so many bloody friends".
I hope he knew and hope he was looking down on all of us with a smile knowing how much love really did surround him.
