A huge thank you to Brighton Hospice for their kind & compassionate care at his end of life, and the many friends that have helped us through this journey with their prayers, caring hearts, visits, and love. 

Jeffrey was an outgoing, "simple man" that loved the Lord, his family, many friends, fishing, bowling, pheasant hunting, and making people laugh!
