    To Jeff’s Family, we never met you..but you are truly special people, because you raised and molded Jeff into a beautiful, kind, loving, and caring person. Jeff brought light into our lives…he put smiles in our hearts…and he always left us feeling happy. We recently moved away from the North Country, and true to form, Jeff was there to help. To help push the too big refridgerater, through the too small door, and to load the 2 Uhauls….after a day of stress…Jeff brought tons of laughter……We loved him….We truly enjoyed being with him…and we will miss him, and mourn his passing. Our Christian faith promises and comforts us in our promise of all being together again in Heaven. Until then…we love you Jeff, and our hearts hold you and your family in our prayers. May God bless you….forever your friends, with love Mark and Sue
