  • Jeffery had one brother that preceded him in death. He also has 4 sisters that are survivers. Although some consider us step siblings. We never did. He was our brother. We loved him. We took care of him and we tried to protect him from the evils that suround. I was with him until the end. I love him and I miss him. And I will always love him. The one thing I know is he now knows the truth of the past. All the lies got peeled away for him. Kyle, Derrick, Lorrie and Andrew my sympathies. Love you. Aunt Debbie
