Happy Birthday to Jeff

Happy Birthday to Jeff

December is a month of many celebrations, including the birth of my oldest brother and oldest friend in the world.

Big brother Jeffie and baby Nettie, in Chicago.

We’ve been around the world together, living in Canada and all over the US, and traveling through Europe with the Concordia Orchestra. Through moves, college, grad school, doctoral studies, roadtrips, weddings, babies, quartets, trios, and that “Duet with Eyeglasses Obligato” — and epic theological/spiritual/philosophical discussions – so many adventures we’ve been through together!

I was home from PBI for Christmas, and Jeff was home from NYC.

This had to be either Chicago or Dallas.

Happy Birthday, Jeffy.

So thankful we’re still best friends.
