Rachel, Aunt Anne, Uncle Gene, Gene and boys;

There are no words of comfort that can ease the pain of your loss. Jeffrey was one of the sweetest people ever to walk this earth. I will always remember how my mom's face would light up when she talked about Jeffrey. And he loved his Aunt Mary Lou, dressing up as Santa and visiting her at Christmas, he made her last Christmas so memorable for us all. He called her an angel, now they are angels together. Time will ease the pain and the memories will take their place. Sending hugs and love, Janice
