Dear Dave and family, I was sorry to hear about your brother. A young life too soon taken. It is so hard sometimes to understand. May God give you peace and comfort. May his wonderful memories live forever in your hearts.

I am so sad about Jeff. He was such a great guy and a good friend in Colby. His sense of humor and quick laugh will always be remembered. You will always have a special place in my heart, Jeff. RIP.

From Brad Hansen...

I remember when Jeff first moved from Oakley to Colby. He came out to play Little League baseball, and I was the first one to play catch with him. That intial meeting grew into a lifelong friendship, through all the trials and tribulations of our school years and beyond. I’m saddened beyond words in realizing that we’ll never again be able to talk and laugh about our experiences together. I’ll miss you old friend.

My heart is broken and I really miss you Jeff. Bianca said I miss my Grandpa Jeff and she is praying for you. We looked out at the moon tonite and shared a special moment with you. Thinking of you forever you will always be in my heart.
