A Beautiful Weekend

It has been a beautiful weekend with family and friends coming in from all over the country. We have laughed, cried, reminisced over lots of good memories and mostly just spent quality moments together. We even had a random fireworks show from the 21st. floor.Today we all went to an art festival right outside the hospital and then took a stroll to the Boston gardens where we had a wonderful pizza picnic lunch sitting outside with perfect sunny blue skies listening to beautiful music by a random musician.  The immediate family is now sitting with Jeffrey while he is resting. Even Benson managed to give Jeffrey a facial he loves.  We just wanted to thank you all for the love and support you have given us. Jeffrey is an amazing person.

We cannot even begin to send this to all who have been there for us and for those who are with us now so please forward this to all.

  1. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Jeff's strength, humor and perseverance over the past year is a testament to the two of you as parents. I have never met the two of you, or Jeff, but am connected to this blog through friends from Penn and Dallas and the Jewish community. It makes me smile to think that such an incredible person was able to find joy in life until the very end. I wish your family strength in transitioning to a new reality and know that your son's name and zest for life will be carried on by strangers and friends alike.

    May G-d comfort you both & your entire family and may you all know of no more sorrow.
