    There are many people from our online community who won’t be able to attend the memorial or the funeral for Jeff. I’m sure I speak for hundreds of people who would be there if they could be there. We were all shocked by the sudden loss of a good friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.

    He wanted to talk to me. I talked to him for a little while but always meant to take the time to sit and talk to him. What a dear he was. A devoted friend. Always looking to help out when he could. He was much loved by many.
