Twenty Years from Now

December 21, 1969 – November 8, 2020

On November 8, 2020, Phillip Jeffrey passed away from multiple myeloma. That sentence represents the end of a life of incredible creativity, positivity, and hope. Those who knew him will testify to that. I’m his younger brother David, and I hope you find in these web pages not only a glimpse into a great man, but also a reason to continue living, and to become “SuperBetter.” I want to leave you with the quote my brother embraced (tyfn):

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines! Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover!” (attributed to Mark Twain)

    So sorry to hear of Phillip’s passing. My condolences to you David and the rest of his family. Phillip was such a Myeloma Warrior. I enjoyed his check-in updates and beautiful pic that accompanied. May he rest in peace.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve been following your brother’s blog since my own diagnosis in August 2019. His incredible optimism and hope helped me immensely and I regret not having commented before to let him know that an anonymous girl from California found comfort in his words.
