The original version of Jeffrey"s Theme - Scott Schaefer & Ruben Moreno
Jeffrey Turner was my friend and in some ways like a nephew to me. He was the bravest person I have ever had the privilege to know. He was taken from us much too early in life after a battle with a rare soft tissue cancer called Epitheloid Sarcoma.
His Grandmother, Katherine Blankenship, was my baby sitter when I was a child. I met Jeffrey's Mom, Heidi when she was just 2 years old and I was 9. My family and I consider the entire Turner and Blankenship family an extended part of our own family.
Jeffrey left us all in awe of his amazing short life and showed us all how to appreciate all that life had to offer and not take anything for granted.
To honor Jeffrey and his family at his memorial service on Dec 6, 2015, along with Ruben Moreno, I co-wrote and performed this song. Although there are no words, the song musically expresses how it felt for me to be in Jeffrey's presence.
You will forever be missed, my friend.
