Though I will be out of town on sat. 20th, my thoughts will be with jeff’s Loved ones. Most especially, jeff’s Grandson Daniel. Having known Jeff for maybe 35 yrs., it did my heart good to see, in his later years , the unconditional love he shared with Daniel. Jeff and I are the same age, and had much in common, not the least of which was our shared memories of a youth spent, in part, in south Alabama. Jeff was my friend and I will miss him, he did me the special honor of sharing his thoughts and feelings, over a long arc of time. My love goes out to Daniel and Jennifer, and their colorful, always interesting dad and grandad. Rest In Peace, old friend-and god speed to you.
