Brian and Kim, and also Jeff's siblings ~ I met Jeff about 6 years ago at Fairhills, but feel like I'd known him so much longer! I believe anyone who knew Jeff would consider him a special friend - he found a common bond with almost anyone he met, and always had such a positive and optimistic attitude! He was especially proud of his children and grandchildren... May all your happy memories overrule your grief.
