    I pray for the family and friends. To give them comfort at this time. Loss is not an easy thing to deal with at all.
    I knew Jeff and his family when we were in high school and lived around the block from them. I always adored his family. Lord bless you all.
    Love Carmen DeLaTorre

    Jeff will be greatly missed, it seams as if the plans of getting with Jeff will have to be put on hold for a brighter day. We will see you on the other side my good friend.

    So sorry for your loss, Susie! When we were in school together, Jeff seemed like the kind of person who would live his life to its fullest, and love with his whole heart and soul! May the Lord encourage your heart and give you peace, knowing that you’ll be reunited one day.

    Prayers of comfort and sympathy for the whole family. We were friends of Jeff and 1st wife, Dianna, for over 30 years. Our children went to school together at Hope Lutheran School and Shawnee Mission Northwest High School. Jeff was so funny and he loved life and lived it to the fullest. Jeff is with the Lord now and we will meet again one day.
