Default Gotta get something off my chest.

I had a good friend and photographer buddy pass away yesterday. 30 years old. He had cancer. He was married just last year and we drove to Cali for his wedding. This isn't "public knowledge" right now as he wife doesn't want it in social media, but since there are no cross links between here and there. I figured this is ok.

I am devastated right now. Way too good a man to leave this earth this soon. RIP Jeff.

I am sorry about your friend. Prayers sent. The whole cancer thing has me on the last straw. I cannot even count on both hands how many family and friends I have lost to it. It is getting out of control. How is there no cure yet? I mean, it has to be the leading cause of death in the world. It makes the black plague look like a cold. Sorry for rambling, its just after hearing time and time again another loved one or friend taken by Cancer, i just don't understand why research for a cure or something isn't funded more.

I am so sorry that Jeff died. I don't know why young people have to die. His mom must be devastated. I bet Jeff took some beautiful pictures. I will pray for peace for all of you.

Sorry to hear , I lost a close friend at 19 . His navy helicopter went down at the beginning of the Iraq war. I will give a shout out to u and family in my prayers. I will pray that whomever God is shaking with this death will listen and learn what they are supposed to. I truly believe God uses deaths of the young for higher purpose than we can fathom. I think deaths are not just by chance I myself would dead if that was the case . I have been saved twice from death it wasn't luck I promise you that. I ended up not having cancer another time and the calendar at my parents house the day I was given that news said (it's been 14 years so hopefully I get it correct) " now it's time to share the word of God , because the glory of God has saved you" that isn't just luck.

Thanks everyone. The prayers must be working because I'm much more at peace this AM. Still sad, but not in the place where I was 24 hours ago.

If you'd like to see some of Jeff's work visit his website, or his 500px page.


Personally I think this image is one of his best.
