Paula: I was shocked and saddened to read of Jeff's passing. My deepest sympathies to you and your daughter. Jeff was a great guy, jovial and pleasant! I still remember our days down at The Lube partying and having fun! Boy we were young. I'm so, so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you. Debbie Kostka (formerly Slovesko in case you don't remember!)

Dear Paula and Katie,
My memories of Jeff are from two different perspectives.
First are all of the wonderful times that Janice and I shared with you and Jeff. From New Year's Eves to Valentines Day dinners every year at the old Avalon Inn in Warren created memories that I will never forget.
Secondly, are my countless great times with Jeff from the first day that I met him at The Herald so many years ago. I could write a book.
Janice and I send you both many prayers and condolences and our love during this most difficult time. The world has been a less happy and less interesting place these last few years without Jeff to brighten it up.
May the angels comfort him and crack open a Miller Lite with him after a round of golf or a softball game. He is in a better place now. Gone but never forgotten.

My condolences to the family. Sorry for your loss. I believe Mrs. Trunbull was my fourth grade teacher at West Hill Elementary back in 1979-1980. In my prayers.

Paula and Katie,
Jeff was and will always be remembered as one of my most special friends in my life. Between golf, softball, an occassional beer, Jeff and I spent countless hours together and always felt he was like a another big brother to me. I know he LOVED you two as much as anything in this world. Please know that Kristin and I are praying for you and your family at this difficult time.

Deepest condolences,
Bob Greenburg
