    Uncle Jeff, I always condsidered youi more a big brother than an uncle. It was great grwoing up with you and we had some fun times. You were the best room mate ever and taught me how to make omeletes. The only regret I have is that we did not keep in touch over the last few years . But you knew that I loved you and thats really all that matters. Gone but not forgotten! Love Laura Lee
