Greg, JJ, Monica and Maria, I am so sorry for your loss. I recently spoke with Jeff before his trip to Hawaii this summer and we've stayed in touch throughout the years, so today was a horrible shock after I looked up Big Valley's address online and read the news. Jeff helped me buy my first house, convinced me to become a realtor and was entirely responsible for my success in real estate, which of course brought with it lots of baggage, but he also was the kind of person that I could always depend on no matter what. Please accept my deepest condolences.

With deepest sympathy to the family during your time grief. Psalms 46:1 says God is for us a refuge and strength and a help readily to be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead.

I grew up with all the French family and was very saddened to read of his much too premature passing. It seems that he had a good life and a very loving family. He certainly resembles his beautiful mother Mary Jane who was a large part of our lives in the 50's and beyond. My sincere condolences to all his family.
