"To the family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and ?death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.?(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy."
"Whew, seems so surreal. Jeff and I grew up together, played basketball, baseball and were on the track team together. There are so many memories that picking just one is difficult. However, I remember the night we upset Needmore in basketball, ending their two-year regular season unbeaten string. There was one man who followed our team that was quite poor and Jeff brought him a Medora Hornet sweatshirt to wear as he watched that game. Jeff told him he was our good luck charm. I hate that I will not be able to attend Jeff's funeral. Please know my sincere, heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the family. "
