Michael, I was so very saddened to hear about your Dad. No amount of words can comfort your sorrow at this time. Remember all your little trips and adventures you went on together. As time goes on you can fondly recall those times and have a smile. Not many days pass that I see something, hear a song, or see an old truck and I think of my dad and doing some work together. I'm just so sorry that you didn't have more years to store those memories, but there will be very special ones for you. I'm sorry the situation doesn't allow me to be there now, but I know you have a lot of support from many friends. Know that I always am here for you and if you need the services that a dad could provide, please do not hesitate to contact me. Keep the faith and if you need spiritual answers or have questions, there is no one better to speak to than your Grandma. Again my deepest sympathy for you. Always, Tim

Mike and family I am really sorry about your loss.

Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Jeff at West Virginia Northern Community College from 1998 to 2000. Although I could say many good things about Jeff, it is best if I simply echo what you already know: "Jeff was the best." My association with him at WVNCC was the better for having known and worked with him. In sincerest sympathy, Dave

To Jeff's family: I was shocked and saddened to read of Jeff's passing. We dated for a few months back in our college days, but it has been many years 17?since I last saw him. I have a lot of fond memories of him and he will always be one of the most decent men I have ever met. My condolences to Jeff's wife, family, and all who loved him.

Uncle Jeff- Months have passed now that you have left us but it dosnt stop the constant picture of you playing in my head. It was so different without you at Christmas this year but dont worry we gave Michael your chocolate covered cherries. My mom misses you dearly, please watch over her, and all of us, when you left you took a part of our hearts that wont be replaced until we can one day be with you again. I love you Uncle Jeff, and miss you dearly. Oh and hey how about that Steeler's season this year? That was all for you...

Words can not even come close to expressing the pain and sorrow I have for my Uncle Jeff. He was one of the most soft spoken, but caring men I have ever come across. He was one of my biggest supporters and living without him in my life will be very difficult for me, and everyone who was blessed to know him. And although I sit here with glossy eyes and rosy cheeks as I continuely try to imagine the next McDonald Christmas without him, I can not even imagine what it is like for my mom, for he was her best friend and especially Michael. I love you Mikie and you know that I always will. Your dad cared for you very much, it was evident every time you guys came up for a visit. I know you can go on, and altough every day will be an ongoing struggle, you are a very strong man who has a bounty of friends who will support you every step of the way. Stay strong and always hold the memories close to you, we are all here for you, and if you need anything never hesitate to ask.
