    So heartbreaking to hear of Jeff's passing. I've known him for many years (before I was a teen). He was always so kind and polite. Just a good and person with a heart of gold. It's been a lot of years since I've seen Jeff in person since moving away from the Carolina's but we manage to reconnect on Facebook. It was so good to communicate with him after all these years. Sending prayers to his wife, family and dear friends. He will be missed but never forgotten.

    As your sister-in-law I can honestly say you had such a gentle soul. I never ever saw you mad or mistreat anyone. You had such a calming soft voice. Your heart was full of love and compassion for others. You will be missed but your memories will live on in each of us that knew you.
