Jeff, Its been 6 years or so since your passing. I swear I originally left you a reflection here, but going through them all, it looks as if maybe that day the internet wasn't my friend. I know myself and John and Justin all think of you often and wonder what its like where you are. It never seems real, thinking of the last time we talked about hunting and how you enjoyed being able to put your boots up while doing reports. I enjoyed the crazy times at SFA and the criminal justice association.
Thank you for never conforming, for always being you.... growing up.....but always being yourself. From the first time we met in Dr. Boyds class, when they asked you to read out loud, and you proudly finished up by stating you were the valedictorian for Detroit High School graduating class of 78.

Brother, I hopefully the angels know what they have, that the beer is better than keystone, and there's no end to the good tunes.
