    Dear Frank, Lynn and Wes, I am one of your Toledo, OH cousins. We are all so sad to hear the news about Jeffrey. We smile when we think of how fun he was, when we were all there, many years ago. He thought we were funny. I saw him 3 years ago when my husband and I stayed at Frances and Harold’s house. It felt like it had only been months since we had seen him. He is with his beautiful Mother and Granny now and they wil take good care of him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    To Jeffs family and my Dear friend Amanda Maddox,
    I’m very sorry to hear about Jeff’s passing. I didn’t know Jeff, but he must have been a very nice guy, to be with Amanda. I know that words won’t ease the pain of losing a Loved one, and only time will heal the Heart. Jeff may not be with you in body, but he will ALWAYS be in your Heart and Memories. And everytime that he crosses your thoughts, it will make you smile and bring back Good memories and the Love that you shared. And remember, that your lives have been Blessed, for him to have been part of it.

    My thoughts are with you all, during this hard time of loss.

    Frank, Like others, Pam and I were stunned to hear of Jeff’s death. I watched him work and appreciated his efforts. I was not aware of his medical issues. It can be said that he left behind not just loving family, but evidence of his efforts in life, including our’s and our neighbor’s wharfs.
    It is one of a parent’s worst nightmares to bury a child. I can’t say I know how you feel, but can say I feel for you.
    You have always had my respect. Now you have my sympathy. Come by and sit on the wharf with me one day and let’s just watch God’s wonders and consider the verities of life.
    May God bless and comfort you.
    Sincerely,
    Len Turner
