  1. We were so sorry to hear about your loss. I have so many fond memories of George growing up. I spent so much time in your home while I was in high school and always felt so much love and patients from George even when Terri and I got into trouble. George will always have a place in my heart.

  2. Dear Jeffers Family. I was just searching for people I knew from Elliot Drive and was very sorry to find this announcement.
