    Jeff was a very good man. He gave me a job when I needed one. Faith and I will never be able to articulate the gratitude we have for him nor can we measure the blessing he was to us. This world is a little less brighter without him. I have no doubt that “DJ Grey” is doing his part to make Heaven a livelier place. We send up our prayers and thoughts for his family.

    When I had few, he was my friend. Jeff and I had some really good times, and I will always value his advice. If the family needs anything, please email me.
