IN LOVING MEMORY OF JEFF WANTA...A FATHER, A HUSBAND, AND A FRIEND FOR ALL ETERNITY
JEFF-How do I begin to put in to words how much you meant to me?
How do I begin to even try to say how special our friendship was to me? I
shared everything with you. You knew my deepest thoughts, and my darkest
fears. You knew my most sacred secrets, and my wildest dreams. You always knew just
what to say to me to make me smile and laugh. You knew how to combat my obnoxiousness,
and show me I wasn't the quickest witted person in town. You knew how to make
me feel beautiful. You knew how to make me feel special and important. You
taught me so many important things. You taught me how to be open. You taught
me to be myself. You taught me to be proud of who I was, and what I stood for.
You taught me that there is nothing in life more precious then friendship and
family. And now.....now you have taught me how to cry. I only wish you had
allowed me one last moment with you. I know I will never forget you, or the
things you taught me. I will try to live by your example of living life to it's fullest,
but I know that I will never be the legacy you were. So what can I say now that I haven't
already said to you? Only one thing. Thank you. Thank you for being so special
and such a loving, warm and wonderful person. Thank you for showing me the
important things in life, and being a friend when I needed it most. Thank you
for being my shoulder to cry on, and having the ability to change my tears to
laughter. And most of all, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be your
friend, for I may never recieve another gift of that magnitude in my years to
come. I love you Jeff. You will stay in my heart and in my memories, until the
day we meet one another again in the afterlife. So now, with tear stained cheeks
and a final sigh, I say the last word: Goodbye.
