From the moment you met Jeffrey, you knew you were being blessed and that a special friendship was being made. Jeffrey showed the kind of love that was unconditional and a true believer of the Lord with a heart to serve others. Jeffrey was an angel among us, a son, a brother, an “Uncle”, a cousin, a nephew and a special friend to so many. He will be greatly missed but have faith and know that one day, we will be reunited with him.
