  1. Mr. and Mrs. Gavel, Lynn, Rick and Nadean,

    It is so very, very sad to hear of Jeff’s passing. I counted him among my closest friends and I share in your grief.

    Jeff was an amazing and lifelong friend. It didn’t matter how long it had been since we last spoke – each conversation picked up as if we had seen each other just yesterday. He was a true blue friend – one of the good ones.

    I’m sure you know that Jeff’s memory and the times we shared will always remain deep within my heart.

    With deepest sympathy,
    Wenda
