  • I’m so sorry for your loss I really like Jeff he was a very nice guy. I used to live by him in the country. May he rest in peace.

  • Jeff is one of the few people in this world I called friend, I knew he needed a miracle and prayed for one now he is gone and I’m unprepared for the sadness I feel. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • I’m Margaret Franklin, expressing my sadness in learning of your loss. May the God of comfort give you the strength to endure. His promise to remove this enemy, will soon be realized.. To reassure us of this promise, he had it recorded in his word, at Rev. Chpt. 21 ver.4. May the Bible’s hope of the resurrection, prove to be a comfort at this time.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Margaret Franklin
