    Dearest Karen, Kyle, and Ashley

    Words will never express the deep loss and sorrow we feel for you at Jeff’s passing.

    Jeff came into my life shortly after he and Karen began to date. My childhood friend Karen knew she had found “the one,” and I was thrilled for her. I was honored to stand with them at their wedding.

    Jeff has always been a positve influence in my life. His constant good nature and his generosity was never outmatched. Jeff was always ready to lend a hand, cook burgers, :-)) or offer a perfectly-timed joke.

    I will miss Jeff. The world is a little less bright with him gone.

    With deepest sympathy,
    Jan & Paul

    If he burns brightly before he dies,
    his brightness shines for all time”

  6. Dear Karen: I will always remember Jeff for an incredible outlook on life and being a glass half full person. The strength and courage he showed thru his illness was truly extraordinary. Every time I saw him he had an “it is what it is attitude” and wanted to chat about what we usually chatted about. His ability to deal with the business we chose was always so much better than mine and he constantly reminded me there was more to life than worrying. I also know a person’s strength is supplemented by the love that surrounds them. I know what his family meant to him and therefore that great strength of character wasn’t really surprising. I truly enjoyed spending time with him playing ball, talking shop or sports or anything really. I think he inspired people he knew to try and be a better person and when you think about it that is quite a legacy in itself. Kevin and Leona Abel

    I just read Jeff’s obituary in the Wynyard Advance.
    Jeff is 2 days younger than I am; we started out together and spent many happy years in school.
    I had not seen him for many years until his mom’s funeral.
    I couldn’t get over how much he had matured into a look-a-like of his dad, Ole.
    He still had that wonderful smile.
    Nice memory I have of him from that day.
