~Jeffery T. Anderson~
When Jeff came to our school we were in the 5th grade
He smiled that smile and friendships were made.
We learned and we grew all side by side
The bond that was formed will never be untied.
We headed to Stoutsville, new friends to find
Memories were made, the everlasting kind.
Jeff played ball with the boys and made the girls smile I
f only we?d known we had such a short while
To love and enjoy a friend so dear
We would never have looked forward to summer this year.
To Jeff?s parents and Jimi his friends promise today
That Jeff will go with us each step of the way.
His memory we?ll hold close, deep in our hearts
Our friendship with him will never depart.
Not a ball game will be played or a milestone passed
That Jeff won?t go with us in the midst of his class.
My last visit with Jeff
I?m sure that I saw
Angels by his bed to help him hear the Lord?s call.
I believe that they lifted him to heaven above
Where today he?s wrapped safely in my Father?s arms of love.
I know that He?ll hold Jeff until the day when
I can meet my friend in heaven and we?ll smile again.
