I'm sorry to post here that Jeffrey Atwood passed on last night. He was surrounded by family and Wonka was there. He talked to his best friend & soulmate  all day yesterday, played him music all day and showed him his boardie thread, made sure he saw all of your names and well wishes.

 

He was in no pain and seemed very calm. I'm sure that he will be a happier man and will find peace now, and is probably jamming with Jerry as we speak. We will miss our longtime boardie brother and friend so so so much.

it's painful to wake up and read this beany but it's good that he was with wonka and family. 

 

i know jeff struggled at times but i was lucky to see him each summer in his happy world - at vibes where he always

seemed at peace.

 

fare thee well brother.

Tears streaming down my face.  It's a privilege to have known such a sweet, gentle and kind man.

 

My heart aches for you and Mike and his family.  He was one of us from the very start, and he will be conspicuous in his absence.

 

Just lit a candle for him.  Goodbye friend. <3

Cheffrey, you will be so missed, by so many people. I hope there is an amazing kitchen waiting for you, and that the cake is always fresh out of the oven.

I met ChefJeff (and Wonka, I do believe) after co-planning a "Boardie Outing" at Six Flags New England amusement park in Agawam, Mass.  in like 1999 or something.  (Wende was there...)

 

It was very brief - but I recall well him being a kind, and warm man...      Sadly, I believe that was our only meeting.

 

 

Mere words cannot express enough how each time a member of this community ~leaves ~  it truly is losing a family member.

 

 

Rest Easy Jeff....

 

 

and yes... yes -     CAKE

He always had a kind word.  Always kept it positive.  "Relax, everyone, I trust Terrapin." 

 

He's making Cute Lunches for Julia somewhere right now.  I know it.  Listening to some tunes.   Bye Jeff.  You were one of the good ones.  :(

 

I still remember the bacon-wrapped scallops in the gooey sauce.  Hell of a cheff.  Hell of a man.

it's a strange emotion to feel a distinct sense of loss over someone who i've never met in the 3D world.  i wish healing and peace for all those here who loved Jeff, clearly he was one of the "good ones"...which seems to define this community.  fare thee well!

So I haven't logged in here in a long while, and I just noticed I had new 2 private messages.  Both of them were from Jeff.  I'm going to share them here:

About Perrin! I will always have the thought of the time at The Other Ones when you let me crash and the cat was was walking on someones face when I woke up in the morning. Just a great memory for me. Just wanted to share

Jeffrey

<<<<

 

This was just the kind of guy he was.  I never replied to these messages, never saw them.  But Jeff knew I was hurting and sent good thoughts to me directly.  I wish I had seen these and replied.  :(

 

Rest well, Jeff.
