Dear Judy, Please know that you and your Beautiful Family are in my thoughts as you grieve the unmeasurable loss of your dear, wonderful Jeff. To me he was a very dear friend, colleague, teller of tall tales (some were true!)co-worker and ‘birthday twin’. I will miss him dreadfully but I know that his Memory will live on in the hearts of his Friends and all those he came in contact with. Take care all of you. Love Sue.
