The big Guy

Postby Tony Gillott » Mon Apr 22, 2002 5:18 am

I came across some verse and it reminded me of Jeffrey, I only knew him for a short while, 2 months 31 years ago and 2 hours last year, but he had a big impression on everyone's lives.
Last year, yes, he was in some discomfort, he told me that he had just had laser surgery on his eyes the day before or even that day. We had a great time and he did not let that spoil the evening.
So with a couple of changes here it is, it certainly reflects my thoughts about him and I am sure that a lot more agree.

When years have rolled behind us, and back in time's deep shade,
The distant days of boyhood grow fainter 'til they fade,
One memory I'll cherish, one name hold ever dear,
And through the darkening shadows, the Big Guy shall yet stand clear.

I have just found some old 35mm transparencies from 1970 with Jeff in, they are very small, but I will try my best to get them scanned and posted.
