  1. I remember many fun family gatherings (especially 4th of July) with my cousins, Jeff, Jody, Debbie, and P.J. when we were all so young. One of the family traits is “Hoy” laughter I enjoy hearing. My love to you all and of course my aunt Marge!

  2. I met Jeff 8 years ago online – on Pogo gamesite – in the Buckaroo Blackjack game – THE SALOON – we became friends quickly – he was a wonderful friend to me – he used to watch over me – I was new and unfamiliar with gaming sites and chat etc. He always protected and defended me. The most endearing quality that Jeff had was the kindness and understanding he showed my daughter who is on the autistic spectrum – he used to email her cards – birthdays and never once forgot a special occasion. We shared our thoughts as our children grew – his two boys meant the world to him. He was a true friend – he left footprints on my heart and will never be forgotten…my sincerest condolances to his family – my prayers and thoughts are with you all. HexitVexit aka Hexi aka Joyce

  4. Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.
    He will be forever in my heart!

  27. Remembrance is a golden chain
    Death tries to break,
    but all in vain.
    To have, to love and then to part
    Is the greatest sorrow of ones’s heart
    The Years may wipe out many things
    but some they wipe out never.
    Like memories of those happy time
    That we have shared together.

  28. We thought of you with love today,
    But that is nothing new.
    We thought about you yesterday.
    And days before that too.
    We think of you in silence.
    We often speak your name.
    Now all we have is memories.
    And your picture in a frame.
    Your memory is our keepsake.
    With which we’ll never part.
    God has you in his keeping.
    We have you in our heart.
    Sleep with the Angels Jeff.

  29. Shed no tears

    That it became my time to go it was I fear

    I beg of you for me me please shed no tear

    I may be gone in body. but in spirit still here

    If you keep me in heart & mind I’ll always be near

    It’s a highway that one day we all must take

    If we always keep our beliefs we he will never forsake

    When called we must go it isn’t our decision to mak

    Heaven is a beautiful journey in which we will all partake

    When you look up at the sky be sure to look with love

    As I have joined all the angels in heaven above

    I was taken to the thereafter on the wings of a dove

    And the happiness up here fits your soul like a glove

    When you start to miss me please shed not one tear

    When in remembrance think of me I will always be near

    I can never go that far away in you heart forever ill be here

    When your time comes go with faith not with fear
    Fly with the Angels Jeff. I will always love you. Love Your Angel
