Re: Where is Alfajeffster?

Very saddened to hear this news.

As a fellow poster I found him to be respectful, talented, strong-willed, but above all genuine.

A really nice guy.

Re: Where is Alfajeffster?

I'd like to think that Jeff is out there in the ether hitting balls with Suzanne Lenglen and Helen Wills and reunited with family members he missed so acutely.
Here's to the happy moments spent together on BFTP and in person. He lived life intensively and intensely and, without doubt, loved tennis....and shoes!

Jeff was a really unique member of this forum, I enjoyed his posts very much, he came over as a passionate and genuine guy. Really sad to hear about him passing away, but I am sure he enjoyed every minute of his life! RIP Jeff.

So sad to read this news.

I had the good fortune to converse with Jeff on a few occasions, and they were always a pleasure.

Sleep peacefully .... there's a bright star shining in heaven now.

Re: Where is Alfajeffster?

I haven't been to the forum lately (too busy) and now I log in and find this sad piece of news. I appreciated Alfa's humour and his share of tennis-related memories, and above all his love of the game and of good tennis players. He was a real fan of his favorite, and yet could appreciate the other great players we loved to watch and admire and talk about. We PMed now and then and I think we had a special respect and appreciation for each other, and he was really nice and sweet about my thoughts and opinions. I hope you are in a nice place now and enjoy being relieved of all earthly sorrows, Jeff.

Re: Where is Alfajeffster?

Oh wow that is such sad news. Alfa was always one of my heroes on these threads! I haven't been here for so long and to finally check and and find this out is very sobering indeed. I shall miss his wit, humour, humanity as well as his incredible tennis knowledge. I am sure he is having a wonderful time in tennis heaven and looking in on all his loved ones still on this plane.

Fave recent players: .. Seles .. Hingis .. Serena .. Venus .. Federer .. Roddick .. Hewitt .. Haas .. Rafter .. Safin .. Radwanska ..

Wouldn't it be great if he was able to zing us from the other side Rollo.

So glad you are still around too! I expect to be back online more again now ... I was just taking a bit of a break from some of the chaos you get caught up in.

Re: Where is Alfajeffster?

RIP Jeff. Once, by chance, I posted a pic of a waterfall in north Georgia and it just so happened to be a waterfall that his late mother had visited as she was from this area. It brought us an instant connection.

I argued with, laughed with, fought against, and learned from Jeff. We shared emails and phone conversations but never arranged his visit so I could take him to the waterfall. I regret this now.

I miss you Jeff!
