Condolence & Memory Journal

My uncle was the most funniest person ive ever met. And ever will meet. He had the strength and bravery of a lion. And a heart as sweet as a bunny! I love and miss you everyday! He was one amazing person.

Growing up, Jeff's dry sense of humor and unique perspective could - and often did - quite the room, delivered with his knowing grin and followed by laughter as those in the room processed what he had said. He was a born story-teller and a kind soul. Rest easy, Jeff.

Dear Jeff, the last time we parted, we hugged. I told you that as a little kid you were my favorite. I will miss not being there for another hug. Rest In Peace. Enjoy the family who has gone before you. Until we meet again...

I lived across the street from Jeff from 6th grade through high school. We walked to school together everyday. I can't help but to chuckle every time I think of him as he would always say something that cracked me up. Even though we didn't keep in contact much as adults, he was one of those friends that I will never ever forget. My condolences to Jerry, Joel, and family.

I knew Jeff most of my life. I grew up with him. Jeff is in a better place with his father Jerry and his mother Frances.
