My heart is heavy to learn my dear childhood friend has passed. You and I shared great conversations on E.State St. I am so glad we crossed paths. Rest in peace my friend.
Jeff was a good soul, filled with many talents, humorous, always had a story. I worked with Jeff for about 4 years, and we always had good times together. May the Lord rest his soul, and grant his family peace. See you later my friend.
To Jas, you were your fathers pride and joy, know that his love for you lives forever.
To Ann & Family,
I want you to know that I am praying for you and your family during this time. Please know that earth has no sorrow that Heavn can not Heal. Jeff is in a better place now. Please take the time to stop by SAMS ClUB to see me and we can talk again real soon.
How can I say goodbye to my Big Brother?? I won't; I'll simply say "Rest Easy." I can't remember not having you as a part of my family!! We will never forget you and will ALWAYS cherish the memories. My mind goes back to when you sat with me for HOURS as you sampled different beats to perfect the music for my wedding. You didnt stop until it was perfect!! My goodness-- what a loss!! The friendship that you shared with my sister Joyce taught me the true meaning of friends early in my teenage years. I pray that Jaz will continue to stand strong and be the man that you have raised him to be. Until we meet again, rest easy Big Brother.....the world won't be the same without you!!
To Laney and family it's so hard to know how you guys must feel. I offer my sincere condolences. Jeffrey now is home with your mom and Jesus. It has been a pleasure to know your bother. Signed Dion Edwards "One of Wilbur section finest"
I, Mary is deeply sad about your loss. God Bless you and your Family. Love always from you friend Mary from Highgate Apartment
I just found out today that my dear cousin has gone on to be with the Lord. Even though I can't make the service, just know that my family and I will be with you in spirit. May God forever keep you in his care.
To my dear friend of so many years... I will miss you more than you could ever know. I just wish that I could talk to you now and I can't believe you are gone. You were one of the best! I always loved talking to you, going to movies back in the day and just hanging out...wonderful memories. To Anne and the boys my heart and prayers are with you. My friend is with the Lord and I find comfort in knowing this and peace in Christ Jesus.
I will never forget you and thank you Jaywaa for being such a special part of my life.
There are no words to express the loss of such a great work partner and friend. I remember how we would pass time singing in the booth or at Capital Center together. I love you Jeff my friend.
As you remember the love of your dear brother Jeffrey, as you mourn his loss may you also celebrate Jeffrey's life.
With Sympathy, Love & Prayer my condolences are with you.
It is still hard for me to believe that you are gone. I will miss you and all of our talks, mini opinions, the many questions I used to ask you. I will miss all of your jokes, some great, some corny, but always funny. I remember when I used to say, "ask Jeffrey Shoats, he knows everything." You hated when I said that! Believe it or not good Buddy, most times you were were right! I will miss your off-beat conspiracy theories. I will miss our talks about GOD and all HIS goodness. I will miss my dear good friend, my dear brother, my BESTEST friend. It was a good 30+ years. My family will miss you. You and I have been through a lot together as friends, more than most friends. I will surely miss you. But through it all,I'm glad that you are at peace. No need to learn to drive now, you can now walk again; this time, on streets paved of gold!

Rest in Peace cousin Jeffrey. My heartfelt condolences and prayers to the family. You will remain in my heart. Gone but never forgotten.
