Jeff, you were a pretty good buddy. I'm glad we got to spend some time together. The trips to Nashville, Talladega, Kansas Speedway. You must have accomplished, on Earth, what God intended.

We miss Jeffrey's smiling face at Hen House. Our weekly trips to the grocery store aren't the same without Jeffrey. Whenever we would drive into the parking lot, I would check to see if his car was there. He loved to tease my husband, because his name is Jeffrey too. He was very supportive of our battle with cancer. Jeffrey, you are truly an angel now!
