Jeff was my instant big brother when we met - our last names being the same a true coincidence. Over the last few days I’ve had so many memories pop into my head with him in them that it’s been overwhelming. There was always a joke to be told and a laugh to be had when he was around. He will be truly missed by so many. Prayers to Christy and family and to Jeff’s family as you grieve your loss, but also celebrate the joy that was Jeff and the happiness that he brought to everyone around him.
