    My heart goes out to all! Our deepest condolences 🙁

    Jeff and I shared a few laughs last Friday night at SOS I am so thankful to have had the time with him that night. We always, when together would discuss our school days and laugh a lot about the things we all used to do. He will be missed by many at home here and from afar. RIP Jeff

    Jeff we have know each other since we were kids in Riverside Gardens. Our parents were friends, we were co workers together at Spauldings, then came “The Connection”… what a time that was! The Connection, connection was still alive because of you! You brought a lot of people together and were a good friend to all!
    Your love for your family was unwavering and they like us will miss you so very much.
    My sincere heartfelt condolences to all of Jeff’s family 🕯
