Jeff was a childhood friend of my brother Steve. We lost Steve in 1986. Jeff never failed to recognize me, and always was a picture of kindness, and joy. The world has been a wonderful place for me all my life because of human beings of this quality. Rest in peace young man. I am sure Steve will glad to meet you again after all these years.

What to say when your at a loss for words.. il start by saying Jeff was a good friend. Always laughing and clowning around. Once in a while we disagreed on few things, like who was the fisherman and who was the wisherman. He always had me laughing, either with him or at him... he was the only man i knew that wouldnt give up because it got cold, windy, rainy, he was in it til the end every time we went fishing. He was the type of guy who would alway be the first to lead the way, as im sure is still his plan, as we reunite with him one by one, he will be there to guide us,..again leading the way...... God Bless You Jeff, u will forever be in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers. Goodbye My Friend. Til we meet again. Little Donne.
