It's been over four months now. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Jeff and mourn.

I mourn for Jeff. He truly was the most thoughtful, caring person I have ever met. The old adage "A stranger is just a friend I haven't met" really applied to Jeff. He literally had friends all over the world. Jeff joined our family eleven years ago. He visited us often and never failed to send postcards or give us a call, usually disguising his voice, just to drive me nuts. I mourn that he didn't have the chance to to experience all life had to offer. He was one of the few people that would take the opportunity.

I mourn for my brother, who lost the love of his life. Keith and Jeff had a remarkable relationship. Now, Keith not only has to deal with Jeff's loss, he must defend their relationship to others, including our own government.

I mourn for my six year old son, Brett, who lost his best friend, "Jeffy Boy". They were inseparable companions, always tearing things up around the house.

I mourn for my parents who lost their "other" son.

And I mourn for myself. After witnessing Jeff's memorial service in Boston and listening to Jeff's many friends, I realized that there was so much of Jeff that I failed to see.

So Jeffy boy, I just wanted to let you know, I love you and miss you. Good night, God Bless You.

To the family of this lovely young man who was so tragically taken from the American people, I send my deepest sympathies and prayer.

May Jeffrey's passion for tennis, cooking, his life and love live on in you. We are very sorry for your great loss. Our hearts cry with you.
America Cries
We see your sorrow-
and our hearts cry....
We can not erase your pain
but you do not have to face the anguish alone-for we-
-the American people-
are beside you.
We so desperately want to have the touch that brings you comfort,
the strength that gives you courage,
and the words to lighten your spirits.
And when we are left speechless
may the silence of our nation weave love into your hearts
to ease your sorrow.
May you find healing through our nation's strength as we-
-the American people-
face this difficult time together. Our hearts are with you. Teresa Jahn

My sincere condolences to you Keith and your family. I have known Jeff for over 10 years and know how much he loved you. What an incredible loving relationship the two of you had. But now I know he watches over you from heaven.

Jeff was my partner of 11 years and the love of my life. Quoting his letter to me on our anniversary, "Keith, I still remember the first time our eyes met on August 25, 1990. We are so lucky we found each other. Even through the difficult times, our undeniable love for one another carried us through. I truly love you Keith and don't ever forget that." I was blessed that Jeff called me at 2 am on Sept. 11th to tell me he loved me and couldn't wait for us to go to Italy for his 42nd birthday. More than 300 people attended his memorial service on Sept. 28th (his 42nd birthday) in Winthrop, MA. Anyone who would like text of the eulogies delivered or photos can email me at KBradkowsk@aol.com. Jeff was very close to my family who he had visited just two weeks prior to Sept. 11th. He adored my six year old nephew Brett, who also adored his "Uncle Jeffy Boy." Words cannot express my appreciation for all of the support and compassion sent to me. I have received over 400 cards and letters from throughout the country. I have been especially blessed to have Jeff in my life.The greatest testament to honor Jeff's life is to recognize and respect the wonderful and loving man my partner in life was. And on his aol profile (JDCollman) Jeff states his hobby was "enjoying life." Thank you Jeff for being in my life now and always.

Hi! Jeff was my stepbrother. We were only three months apart in age. At times we had been quite close although in later years we had grown somewhat apart.

I know Jeff certainly made a difference in many peoples lives. I would be pleased if I could affect even a fraction of people the way he did, in my time on earth.

A friend sent me an email this morning...The top 10 reasons to smile. Well, thinking of Jeff and the way he could make anyone feel important should be on that list.

Jeff was living his dream and still found time to let people know he cared about them. I hope I can retain this lesson and practice sensless acts of kindness throughout my life. That I should never be too busy or wrapped up in my own business not to let others know they are important and I care.

Jeff, we'll miss you but you have definitely left a legacy of kindness.

Love,
Susan and (niece) Amy

Thank you for your notes. Raising Jeff was an adventure. He was always interested in travel. On his 14th birthday i baked him a cake with an airplane on it for decoration. He loved it. We will never forget his second love playing tennis. He and his brother played daily growing up. Later he went to lots of pro matches. We had lots of fun and troubles with 8 kids in the house. Jeff will always have a special place in our hearts. Dad and Kay love you Jeff

Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers. Jeffrey loved to fly, so he was doing what he told me he should have done 15 years ago.

God Bless You Jeff.

All My Love,
Mom

I have only known Jeff 4 years, meeting him on Maui before he became a flight attendant. We discovered we both had roots in Chicago and knew some of the same people. Since then we have remained in contact via email and on his trips to Maui. What gives me the most comfort is that I remember how excited he was when he became a flight attendant, and how he loved to travel.

To the family of Jeffery:

You don't know me but I feel so sad for the families that lost loved ones. I lost 2 cousins at the WTC. As God comforts me, I pray that God will comfort you in this time of sadness and loss. All of the people who lost their lives on 11 September truly are
"America's Heros". My deepest sympathy to your family. My heart cries for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead. May God welcome Jeffrey into His Kingdom with open arms.
