Dear Bette and Mike,

Our thoughts are with you, our special friends, as you travel this difficult path with Christy, Chanel, Nicole and Sharon.

You have always stood by us and we wish we could be together at this time to celebrate a young man who made an effort to keep in touch and support our endeavours. Jeff was not merely the son of close friends but someone we called a friend.

Much Love Julie and Ross

So sorry for your loss. Hard to believe he is gone. Jeff was barely out of diapers when I started working for Mike. Got to see the changes from a young teen to a man able to take over his dad’s company.
My deepest sympathy to you all.

We met Jeff because our daughters were soccer teammates for years, some of the best years in my life, aided in no small part because we met Jeff. He was an outstanding soccer dad who I felt would be a friend of mine for life, a life gone way too soon. To his beautiful daughters and family all we can say is we are so sorry for your loss and offer our deepest sympathy.
