We were on a family vacation in Charleston SC having a great time.
Jeff had been ill the week prior but insisted on traveling to honor my aunt Mary who had passed several years earlier but the family was gathering to memorialize her. He really wanted to be there for my cousin, his friend, Chris. Jeff was always thoughtful that way.
He also had a master plan to get my daughter and I together, with him, alone, for one last hurrah. Ashley and I were still dealing with some mother/daughter tensions, some unfinished and unspoken business. But when he was with us, all of that was forgotten. We just loved being together – all 3 of us. Our little family. He wanted to make sure Ash and I mended. Jeff was always thoughtful that way.
