I will NEVER forget my Friends voice...
MS MARY (loud and boastful) like He had never meet anyone like Me before, a black woman who loved country music.....Laughing and making jokes with me about how I spoke to guys when they got on my last nerve. My significant other, He could NOT stand the 3 stooges together. I was one of the fellas. Lol. Enjoying country music and making Mr Gregg sick listening to Jeff and I singing country. WE were awful singers, Jeff and I together, could not hold a note. Then, the two of them would fight over the radio stations and I would be on Jeffs side about leaving the station on country music. We would be laughing so hard. Just living life and loving it. We 3 together. AWESOME.
Then we would argue about where to eat. When I paid he yelled "HELL YEAH".
I MISS MY FRIEND....
Last time we spoke, We were laughing so hard, about his nickname. His wife was there laughing with Us, he said, don't call me that in front of her...GOOD MEMORIES....Thanks, WHITE CHOCOLATE (A TRUE FRIEND).
I love you MAN.

I knew Jeff for the last 17 years or so, having met him through Antonio, his brother-in-law; and always enjoyed his company and friendly, upbeat manner. I really got to know Jeff playing softball and basketball, and he was a very good athlete. I vividly recall when Jeff capped off the best last inning comeback in a softball league Title game I ever played in back in 2011, by bringing in the winning run with a hard line drive to left field. I remember when Jeff came up to bat thinking to myself "Jeff will bring the run home" - AND HE DID. Condolences to his Family. I will miss him greatly - God Bless Him.
