Mr. and Mrs. Woods I am so sorry to hear of Jeffs passing> It came a big shock to me when i got the phone call and i was deeply crushed. I so wanted our son Isaiah to have a relationship with Jeff and we were on that path. I will make sure that Isaiah knows who his father was and how good of a man that he was. Jeff will be missed and I will always hold him in my heart. My prayers to you and your family.

I was shocked to hear of Jeffs passing. Actually, I was devastated. He was the best friend anyone could ever have. And he will be sadly missed. Jeff has been my best friend for about 6 months. He will be missed very much and I am keeping you all in my prayers.

Mr & Mrs Woods, I can not tell you how sad I am to hear of Jeff's passing. We went to high school together in Visalia. We also dated for awhile, I will never forget Jeff. He had such a kind heart and a wonderful smile. I'll cherish his letters, phone calls and jokes. I'm very grateful to have been a part of Jeff's live. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We (Valerie and I) are very sad for your loss. I didn't know Jeff as well as I should have. I liked Jeff, he was a very funny and caring guy. (Valerie and I) wanted him to have a bigger part in his son Isaiah s life. Although he hadn't seen him since he was a tiny baby we know he was taking an interest and wanting to know him. We will make sure he knows who is father is.

We were sincerely devastated to hear of Jeffs passing. As our dearest friend of more than 30 years Jeffs smiling face and wonderful sence of humor will forever be etched in our hearts. I will miss the phone calls on our birthdays to tell us that he remembered our special day and the many text messages to keep us up on his latest jokes. I wont forget his last trip to California. Waking up to him sleeping on our couch, taking him to the coast to our sons football game and convincing him to go to church for the first time. our sincerest sympathies are with his whole family as is are thoughts and prayers. Jeff will forever be remembered as our dearest friend. Sincerely Richard and Dana Byer

Bill and Peggy,
I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Jeff very when I lived in Visalia. He was always bringing me kittens to save. One we bottled fed and my daughter named Jeffrey. Jeff's birthday is on the same day as my daughter's and they always had cake together. Just before Jeff moved to Lamar, he lived in a travel trailer in our pasture. He was a very special person and my two daughters grew up adoring him. We will all miss him.

You probably don't remember me, I ran around with Jeff mainly when him and Terry was married. But after they split and he didn't work at O'Sullivans anymore we still stayed in touch when we could. I really enjoyed Jeff, he was one of a kind. I can't believe he is gone now. I send my condolences to the family. This is a very hard time for you all. Once again, I am sorry for the lose of a good person.
