To the Sansom Family. Donnie, Veronica and George. I cannot and won't even try to say something silly like I know your pain. I don't. As much as I love and care about Jeff. I cant imagine your grief. What I can do is promise to stand with you through this time. Its funny because I'm not in Erie to pay my last respects because I was launching a ministry in Eastern PA designed to help people with addictions problems life hang ups of any kind. I knew Jeff would support that. Jeff had the heart of a lion and if something needed to be accomplished he was willing to see it through. Its funny cause as the meeting ended I had the chance to talk with three young kids and it struck me God please let me help you help one of the three.
They were so young the way I always picture Jeff, Donnie, George, Veronica, and my brother Jerry being. I so wish I could have been there to celebrate Jeff's home going service with you, but, I know Jeff is glad this ministry is launched and those kids have an opportunity to make good out of their lives and to come to know the Lord. I love your family and all of St. Johns and MPS families that are hurting. I love you Jeff and cant wait to see you in Heaven my friend. Love Rev.Wes. Neal and family.
