Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

Dang.........cancer knows no age, nor has any mercy. I hope someone points Jeff in this direction, as I'm sure there are a lot of us willing to help as much as possible with the preparation and the trip.

Bob, if you would, remind him that we were ALL once new to the passion of sailing and if I can learn at least some of it, so too can he.

God speed, Jeff. May the wind fill your sails and take away some of your pain.

Mel:
Yes, he has an Islander 30. I let him know that I have lots of miles on an I-30.

Emoney:
Email him yourself and let him know. I's kind of fun to help out a guy who is just getting into sailing. As you say, we never quit learning. Everytime you go out it is a learning experience.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

God, four kids. Your heart goes out to the guy adn his family. I hope the sailing can ease his pain.

It really puts things in perspective.

Re: Jeffs Last Sail- MUST READ

Jeff goes to the top of my hero board, what a great legacy to leave his family showing them it's not how you die but how you live. I emailed him and asked if he could keep in touch or if he was going to create a blog to let me know.

With heart like that, he has just got to make it. Not making it is not an option. I believe he will. Naysayers be damned.
