John and janet. Sorry to hear about your loss of your son jeff. Jeff was always good at what he did. Whether he was on the field playing drumms, which he was always good at, or off the field and in lifes field doing what he loved the most. And as graduate friend of the class of 1987. RIP my friend.

I was in band with Jeff. He had so much talent. Whether it be a jazzy number or a rock tune like "Tom Sawyer" by Rush. Nothing is more impressive than a drummer when they're in their zone. Jeff was a good guy too. My condolences to his family.
