  • Pat and family, so sorry to hear of Jeff’s passing.
    Please accept my family’s sympathies and prayers during this time.
    I will be unable to attend Jeff’s visitation and funeral, as I will be out of town.
    I will, however, continue to enjoy many memories of us playing on his softball team over the years, and will be reminded of the many repairs he made to my vehicles. I will always remember attending various auctions with him over the years and discussing deals or no deals.
    I hope to see you and the boys around town as our lives go on.

    Allen & Suzanne Armstrong

  • You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband
    I will pray for God to comfort you and your family
