  • Shirk Cousins so sorry for your loss. Over the last three years, I have visited Jeff several times, enjoying a few meals with him. He was well thought of by his fellow residents. He enjoyed their company. He was well taken care of by the staff at Dayspring. All at Dayspring will miss Jeff. He was happy there.

  • I too was graced by Jeff’s witty comebacks to my corny jokes too him.

    He will be missed more then he knows as he always tried bringing a smile to friends faces.
