Garth & Julie and Mary and all of Jeff’s children:
Heartfelt condolences and an extra “I’m so sorry for your loss” to your brother and Dad and friends. I know this is tough, but know that Jeff touched lives along the way. For me it was around 50 years ago. A time in my life where I needed to be a part of something. Jeff’s family offered me this safe place, this wonderful family, this wholesome family who taught me so much from Jeff’s father, to Jeff and Garth. I couldn’t wait to hang out with Jeff. Whether it was any kind of sport we could or movies or roller skating, or piling into his Dad’s panel station wagon and taking all the kids up to their camp and on and on. Those days made me become who I am today. I’m letting you all know that Jeff did touch people as my friend. Circumstances and life for in the way and we hadn’t seen each other in many many years. When I found out he was sick, I had to go see him. And when he found out it was me in that hospital room , and as sick as he was last week, he turned my way and did a double maybe triple take and smiled. Being i. The room brought memories that I had forgotten. I told him some of those stories and he smiled at me. Goodbye Jeff! Know that I never forgot you, and I hope all those touched by Jeff along the way will remember the good times, the fun times, and life along the way with Jeff. Condolences!
