Bodean was an amazing person. Tricia, Madison, and Mrs. Delma I’m so sorry for the pain you’re going through. I have no words to express my sorrow. Bodean and I were just alike when it came to having a loss of words. We never did until now. He was a great person, and friend to all he ever met. Madison he was so proud of you. I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. He was one proud dad and he still is today. I will be continuing to pray for all of you. Just know I’m here if ya need anything at all. Love ya. 🙏🙏🙏😢😢😢❤️❤️❤️

Sometimes I just don’t have the words to say. Knowing how broke your heart is. Understanding that we are Gods Children and we never know when God is ready for us to go home. Just as we are taught you will see Jeff Again. I love each and everyone of you. Many prayers for the upcoming days.

It’s hard to put into words how sweet, silly, and lovable a cousin Jeff was. You could not know him without loving him. It was just impossible. The passion he had for his hounds and hunting was such a big part of who he was.

I grew up with Jeff and also got to work with him for my last few years at the plant. I have yet to meet anyone that didn’t love him, get a kick out of his pranks or get caught up in his contagious obsession with his hounds.

But Jeff’s biggest and proudest accomplishment was Madison and her athletic prowess. I loved to listen to his stories of all her activities. I’m so glad he got to make it to her college graduation. Proud as a peacock doesn’t even began to explain the look in the photos.
Tricia, Madison, Delma Lea, Janet, and family, my heart goes out to you. Y’all have lost a great guy. I love y’all.

Easy to love is how I would describe Jeff! I’m grateful for the short amount of time we knew him. He became family very quickly and my girls adored him. They took the news hard, especially my youngest. They had a very special bond and she loved her Mr. Jeff. They were “partners” in her words💔
