I cannot even begin to tell you how I am feeling losing Jeff. He and I shared so many wonderful fun times, and the stories always made me laugh. I looked forward to him visiting with me daily and those memories will be so cherished. It will not be the same here without him. Just know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, and I wish you all comfort and peace. You have so many memories to call upon to help you get through the tough times ahead. He will be forever in our hearts.

Debbie & Jay & Family, Our sympathies to all of you! What an amazing life Jeff had! Thinking back to our school days and that friendly "Hi" and big smile we received everytime we saw Jeff in the classroom or hallway brings a big smile to my face! Sorry for your loss, Rick & Paula

Jeff was a great guy - he had a ready smile and a heart of gold. He was an important part of my childhood in many ways. I know he was special to many, including me. Happy Trails Jeff, until we meet again.

Jeffrey was such a fun guy.. I can't say how many times he "got" me with his one liners. He was really good with those.. I believe there is no higher compliment than remembering someone and smiling when you hear their name. He was my Buddy. I will miss him dearly.

We want to share our deepest sympathies with you in your loss of Jeff. My husband and I got to know Jeff at the dinner table at the Health Care Center as my husband and I shared meals with Jeff and two others. We appreciated Jeff's caring and gentle ways and the family memories he would share with us. May God's strength and comfort be with you, and may the gift of everlasting life give you peace in this time and always.
Ruth Egerer and Don Breid

Jeff was a wonderful friend and such a part of our school years. We visited every day as we came home from school and have the best memories of the friendliest, kindest neighbor and friend one could ever have!
