is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love, time is eternity.

is a drag as Jeff was a really cool guy. Talented, and fun to spend
time with. He is already missed by us all," says producer Matt
Wallace. "He was one of the finest talents we had the pleasure
of working with. We have never put out a record without him. He
was much more than our artistic partner. Elan called him
her 'muse'. He was and forever will be a member of our family,"
says Jan Carlo DeFan (Poe was nicknamed 'The Pirate' by the
DeFan family). "He was one of the greatest guys I knew,"
says Poncho Tomaselli, a musician friend who called from the road
to express his loss. "Jeff loved his work. We feel shock and
as friends of a special man who left us too soon. He's probably
setting up studio up there somewhere and gathering few talented
artists around him right now," says Claris Sayadian-Dodge.
Jeff Fogerty, Aurin Lahiri, Carolyn Lynch, Eric Friske and KC and
Amie Porter are among friends who have contacted studioexpresso
and would like to send their heartfelt sympathy to Karna and the
entire Poe Family. He lives in our hearts and in the
music he left behind.
