    Thank you for sharing Jeff With us. He brightened up our lives. For years now, every Thursday we would get together to share laughs: comedians, game shows, Warriors games, gossip, sitcoms, and whatever had happened at Wendy’s. We miss him so much already. May our memories bring us some small measure of comfort!


    The world has lost a great man, a true friend, a great boss, a loving son and brother, a man who lived to sing unto the lord.

    My heart goes out to the families, The White Family, The Shiloh Church Family, and his Wendy’ s family as well of his circle of friends and loved ones who were like family to Jeff.

    A better friend I could not have asked for, and I will truly miss your love, compassion and your amazing humble ways.

    Sing with the angels my friend, until we meet again.
