Vivian, Jamie and Caleb,
Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of Jeff. You guys were one of my favorite families, and Jeff one of my favorite patients. He was always laughing and joking and having fun, even in the dental office. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Your family will be in my prayers.
