I have fond memories of Jeff from the late 1970's, when we both spent a lot of time at Synergy House on the Stanford campus. Jeff could throw a Frisbee with pinpoint accuracy, and had a devilish sense of humor. He seemed to always have a smile on his face.

I remember him not just as a father, but as a great person. I never knew anything about his personal life, because most of my life he was bed ridden, but I knew of his old poetry and intelligence that had been left behind.

I met Jeff only once during dinner with his parents. Because of his deafness we had little communication. I'm so glad to know who the real person was. What a wonderful, unique family the Kanes are!

While a graduate student I worked for a while in Binding & Finishing at Green Library. Working along side Jeff was one of the greatest pleasures of that job. As it sates in his obit. he was a very sweet and caring man, and quite a good poet. This is SO unfair!

Our son Douglas was a very good friend of Jeff for several years as they both lived at or near Stanford. Jeff visited our campus home and Doug always spoke of Jeff as a remarkable fellow and good friend. Doug moved east to graduate school, earning two degrees, and teaching in Omaha. He died hiking in Italy at age 47.
