Jeff was like a brother to me when I was growing up. Our parents were close so we spent a lot of holidays together. In about 3rd grade, Jeff moved back to Spokane from Moses Lake. He would eventually live just a few houses down from me. There wasn't very many kids in our neighborhood so we spent a lot of time together. We would ride motorcycles and play in the water all day long. I never lost touch with Jeff, even after I graduated from college and moved to Yakima. I would call Jeff anytime I came home to visit my parents. He and Wanda even came to visit me in Yakima.

His death totally shocked me. Even after an autopsy, they do not know for sure what killed Jeff. He wasn't feeling good after working outside all morning and went in to take a nap... Jeff never woke up. I still miss him and think about him all the time.
