Angela To our family, I love you and am so sorry. I pray that the Lord’s peace and love will comfort you.

Jeff was a definite light in this life! He always had a smile on his face, and that laugh! You’d be talking to him, and he would laugh…. And that thing he did with this eyebrows!! Lol! Jeff did NOT know a stranger and was one of those great guys. Diane, Paige, and Jordon….. I’m so sorry for your loss. There are no words to express my condolences to you! I guess, I just always held out hope that he would be able to beat this. I know he was tired and in pain…. At least he’s at peace…. Heaven has Jeff’s quirky sense of humor up there now…. Fly high Jeff!
