Jeff's death leaves a heartache no one can heal; however love leaves memories no one can steal. Jeff will always be remembered for standing for up for what he believed in; a trait alot of us will ALWAYS respect him for. We have lost a voice that really mattered because everything mattered to him! May God's love and peace comfort you in all the days until you're reunited. God Bless you and the family.

Nancy and family, we are so sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. We missed him at our class reunion last fall. When we would see him and ask him how he was doing he would bypass that question and comment immediately on you Nancy, and the kids, telling what you were all doing now. He was so proud of all of you!
Take good care of yourselves and may God comfort you during this hard time in your lives!

We seemed to have lost transmission. question or fourty plus ten. Would like to say, growing up in Sidney in the 60's everybody was fairly well known. Jeff was well loved and to say simply "Good Thought, Good Word, Good Deed" be with you kind sir! May your family be with the comfort of the same!

My thoughts and prayers are certainly out to Nancy and the entire family during this most difficult time. Jeff will be missed by many in our community. Jeff and I often talked about the Ohio State Buckeyes. Woody Hayes was quoted, "I'm not trying to win a popularity poll. I'm trying to win football games." Jeff was like Woody he had the courage to stand up and speak about things he believed in. I will always respect Jeff for his willingness to help others.

Although I was unable to be there today, my heart was praying along with you at the start of Mass...10:30, EDT. Jeff will be missed more than I have words to express. May God send His angels to watch over all of you, our mother, Mary, to wrap her loving arms around you, and send your heartache to her Son for your peace and healing. The thoughts and prayers of many OLD friends are with you. Blessings...
