Jeff and Jennifer, I remember you both when your mom worked at GEICO. Then I saw you again at her funeral in 2006 and you were all grown up. When I knew your dad, he was a happy man and he made us laugh when he came to the office. May memories of good times with him bring much comfort to you and your families, and may God's grace provide strength and peace during this difficult time. With sincere sympathy. . . Marny
