- Dear Family
One word I can describe Jeff was Funny.
Omg, we had great times at St. Rose and so many funny stories that Terry Sanders and I could tell.
My family had know his dad's family when my father and Ed were classmates at St. Rose over 90 years ago. And I had been at thier home on north sixth so many years ago too. Even the Lammers brothers who went to St. Rose also, could tell the stories of their friendship with Jeff. And who lived across the street from him.
I was shocked to see Jeff died so young, but I am glad too that he was in the last graduating class 1969 of St.Rose school.
God rest his soul. I have thought of him so many times.
Thank for sharing him with us.
