Jeff, we didn't know each other well but we knew of each other. I have spent the last 3 decades loving your sister Jennifer as my own little sister and your mother as family. My heart is sad that they will not see your face any time soon, however please give Sarah a hug for me, as I do think of her often. I am grateful and at peace knowing that you walked on two feet in to the gates of heaven healed! Glory be to GOD!

Today we lay my beautiful husband to rest. The day I met him, he was giving me a hard time about being a Tony Stewart fan, him being a Jimmy Johnson fan. I knew at that moment, there was something special about him that needed to be explored. For the next 12 years, we spent time together every single day in one form or another. I loved my life with him. He never let the sun come up or sun go down without expressing his love for me, often in an battle of who loves who more. Until I see you again, save me a spot next to you at the table. "I love you more, Jeff".

I first met Jeff Lappin when my oldest friend in the world met an married his father, Gaylord Lappin. I soon came to love Gaylord, Jeff and Jennifer and learned what the “twinkles” in those eyes meant- that someone was usually going to be pranked! Jeff inherited from his awesome father his kindness, gentleness, generosity, and incredible sense of humor. I was totally amazed when Jeff met darling Mitzi, my husband’s cousin. It couldn’t have been a sweeter love affair - arranged in Heaven for the world to see how God’s Love shows up and shines here on Earth. I love you Jeff and can’t wait to see you again!

When I first met Jeff 28 years ago, it was such a good day. Jeff was always smiling, making jokes. I think he was the first to name me prego, when I was carrying my son. Jeff was the best Uncle and Little Brother a person could ask for, he could always make you smile and feel better no matter what. Jeff loved everyone and life. We were so happy when he found Mitzi, she was and is the bright star of his and our lives. I am very proud to call both Jeff and Mitzi family. We will love you forever and will always remember the laughter you brought to our lives. May you finally be at peace.

Before meeting the man that would marry my baby sister, she would talk endlessly about him & light up describing the new “Love of Her Life”! So when I finally had the opportunity to meet Jeff, I expected him to be AMAZING and I was not disappointed! His smile lit up the room & his quick wit could make me laugh even at the saddest of occasions. He was the most AUTHENTIC person I had ever met. Jeff & Mitzi were truly two halves that became ONE and I LOVED being around them! I look forward to the day our tears will be replaced with laughter remembering Jeff’s wit, laughter and love of life. Fly long and high with the eagles & angels! We miss you so much!
