Tammy and the Tiger brothers, I am so sorry for your loss. Out of all the people I have met over these many years, Jeff is one of my favorites. Every time I think of him I smile. I can easily think of a hundred things he said or did that make me laugh every time. Even though I have not been home in a long time, I am truly going to miss him. I can’t imagine how much you will. God bless you and please God, bless Jeff.

So very sorry for your loss. He was always nice to me and Kenny when we joined the Eagles. Being new and not knowing anyone he took the time to talk with us. Please accept our sincere sympathy for you and your family.

Tammy, Monk and I are so very sorry for your loss. There are no words to ease your pain but I truly feel blessed to have known Jeff. He was a true gentleman and a wonderful loyal friend. We always enjoyed our times together. The tribute video brought back some memories of how Jeff looked when I first met him till recently. Jeff was a good man and it shows through how you and he raised two sons together. Levi and Jesse are gentlemen just like him. May God be with you and your boys.
