To Jeff from Don
Delirious - his body ablaze with fever, I caressed his brow with cool water. He rallied, opened his eyes, and said, Thank you that feels so good.

I placed a moist towel on his once strong legs - now skin and bone, unable to move. A second towel I placed on his stomach and chest, swollen with pain

With a cool cloth I washed his face Then ever so lightly I washed his crusty dry eyelids. It was then I saw those tears flowing from closed eyes that once shown so bright

Holding his hand I began to gently moisten his arms

His eyes now open unable to communicate he made it known that he wanted to hold the wash cloth

Barely able to hold the cloth and raise his slender arm tears in eyes he began to moisten my arm with that same moist cloth

Love Yes that was my Jeff So full of love just looking for ways to give it out

God you give and receive in ways we do not understand

Sometimes we encounter angels unaware God - thank you for shinning a light into my life

See you later my love You now know death is the ultimate healing

Not dead just gone ahead

Thank you Jeff for knowing I always loved you even though I had such a hard time showing it Why for some it is so difficult to embrace that which means the most
