  • I am thinking of you, Jeff, and keeping your entire family in my prayers.

    I remember when we were just little kids, couldn’t have been much older than 6, when your dad took us to see monster trucks down at the coliseum. That is still one of my favorite childhood memories and it’s all because your dad made it happen for us. Life brings us much pain and struggle, but we live for the moments like you and I had that night, with your dad, watching monster trucks.

    I am so sorry for your loss and I am here for you if you need anything.
