Dear Jeff Smith,
First there was Julia, then Graham Kerr.
I watched as a child, I'd sit and stare.
Mr. Smith, you came along and made it seem real.
I watched all your shows you delivered with zeal.
Your books, I treasure. I still use them at home.
Your favorite 'burger dazzles guests. My son-in-law has made it his own.
I love to cook. You get much credit for that.
You taught me so much as a matter of fact.
I was thinking of you this morning, wondered where you were at?
I found your web site. Happily retired and cooking Seattle, you can't beat that!
You are greatly missed,
Born in Seattle, now cooking at home in Virginia Beach.
