We go way back. Of course I remembered your lovely wife Edna but we all lost touch following grade school. Just wanted to extend my sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your son Jeff. He was a handsome young man. Thinking of you all.

Jeff, and Jack, I worked next door to you in the building when you had Printing/Go Kart shop, you always had that pleasant smile on your face, that's what I liked about you, smiling when you were happy, smiling when you were mad, even tho over the years we lost contact I will never forget the many nights of Go Kart racing, I hope Keith has already met you at Heaven's gate, and ya'll are laughing up a storm. Will always love and miss you, many prayers of comfort for your family, <3
