The vibe of Geoff & Jan



Last week two of my parent’s greatest friends were in town. They have known each other since varsity days back in the 1960’s. They were visiting as part of a holiday to Africa but also to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. My parents celebrated their 40th as well earlier this year and it’s quite remarkable that to think that such close friends have stayed in touch and committed to their partners for so many years sharing experiences around the world while nurturing friendships across continents. The occasion was marked by a dinner at the house of other great friends of theirs, the Haggies. And speeches were given by their son Ben and my brother (& Geoff’s godson), Andrew, who talked about Geoff & Jan’s vibe as being the secret to their marriage.
Here is a photo slideshow for those friends and family who couldn’t make it to see the vibe of the evening…
