Condolences

Condolence From: Donna/Gale Eichenseer
Condolence: Jeff was a great friend, whatever the task, he was there to lend a helping hand. One sunny day, Jeff was helping Gale side our house, they were on the same plank, working towards the middle, it snapped! All Sandy and I saw was a cloud of dust. We looked out the window, Gale was brushing himself off, he was thanking Jeff for breaking his fall. Jeff looking up from the ground with a smile says, "no problem." Now that's a true friend! We have been good friends for many, many years, happy times, sad times, we have been thru it all, but this is the most painful. We miss you deeply! Thank you for all the wonderful memories.....

Condolence: Although I only had the honor of calling Jeff my Father in law for 2 short years; I knew the day I met him that we would get along and he would be someone I would grow to cherish. To say that he was "kind" and "generous" truly do no justice to his real character and worth. He had a great sense of humor;always quick to crack a joke to shed light on a topic. There was no task too difficult for him to conquer..for SO many people, not just for his immediate family. His unwavering love and devotion to his grandchildren was unparalleled. He had the patience of saint and genuinely wanted to make sure the kids had fun in everything they did; always extending himself to make sure they lacked nothing. In the 4 years I have known him, he has done more for myself than I even feel worthy of. The countless days and hours giving Brent and I a lending hand. He was a wealth of knowledge to everyone and always made time to answer a phone call, or come up to the house to help with a sticky situation. I will miss him greatly, just as much as I miss my own Father. I find peace and comfort knowing that my Father will now get to share the company of another great man..who has gone on to now be a angel...and a protector, to so many of us here. God bless you Jeff.

Condolence: Our hearts are broken and heavy with tears. There were many, many times we were all together. Those memories are what we will have forever in our hearts.
The reunion was for all of us to spend the moments with You, Jeff. To cherish that time.
Sandy, Brent and Lisa you all know what a great person you had in Jeff. He loved all of you so much and the grandchildren were his pride and joy.
Time will go on and the hurt will be lessened.
God wanted him at His "heavenly home". It was his time. His job here on earth was done.
He will be missed.
Jeff, we will love you always. And a memory that we have of you in our old camping days was you having the coffee ready before we woke. When it is our time you will have the coffee ready for us!
God has another ANGEL.

Condolence: Sandy, Brent & Lisa,
You are in my thoughts during this difficult time. I have some really great memories of Jeff, one of them being a really fast ride to the hospital in a purple Gremlin and him always catching us listening through the floor vent in the game room!!
Love,
Chrissy
