I met Jeff on December 4, 1971 on a blind date. Jeff asked me to be his girlfriend the very next day. We married exactly one year later on that same day, December 4, in 1972. We had two daughters together, Alisha and Tamara....13 months apart. We also worked together in a spray crete business (which was popular in Florida back then). He sprayed the coating on the walls, and I followed him around with the diamond dust! We had some struggles in our marriage and it ended after only 4 years. We alienated ourselves from each other for some time, but eventually became friends again through the love we both shared for our children. Jeff always made a point to make sure Ali and Tammy loved their mother and showed respect. He turned out to be a caring and loving friend throughout my life, and I will miss him terribly....his voice, his concern, and his pride for his daughters and even for my son from another marriage. There are many things I wish I knew then that I know now that I could have told him and shared with him. He was a one-of-a-kind person and had alot of knowledge. I will miss you, Jeff.......until I see you, Debbie

Jeff was a wonderful friend and coworker at Home Depot in Pelham. He was one of the good guys. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to meet him and call him friend. He gave the best hugs. Always my friend until we meet again. Brenda Black
