Jeff & family, My wife and I send our sincerest condolences to you and your family. I remember the first time I met your Dad and he said to me "any friend of Jeff's is a friend of mine". He truly meant those words!! He was always happy and a true joy to be around. I lost my father unexpectedly 7 years ago, but I still talk to him every day, and he helps me through not having him here physically. I know you will be strong and be okay, but if you ever need to talk to a friend- don't hesitate to call me. Take care, Trumpy
