    So sorry I can't be there at a time when no words will ever do what a hug could do better. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Jeff was a wonderful man. I remember him best as a wonderful boy, a cousin I looked up to. Mona, I remember you saying how you raised each other. You both did a fine job. All my love, Pam
