    My brother Terry and i hold many wonderful memories of Jeff. We have been friends since 1977. In 1982 I introduced him to my now best friend Laurie. From his nova driving in school with the hole in the floor board that his sister Terri and i used to fight over who had to sit there to his reverse slams at Kellogg woods park. My brother Terry wishes the family love and peace thru these oncoming years of anguish. Laurie and family i am always here for you. You are all in my prayers.
