John & Sandy,I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your son, Jeff. I know this will take a long time to heal. In fact, you may never get over this loss. For me, as the years have passed, I can talk about my son. However, it is still difficult. I hope your pain will be more bearable with each new sunrise. (I always remembered how Jeff and David shared the same birthday and now they share the same "heavenly light.) Please, extend my sincere sympathy with your daughter, Nicolle. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sandy & family,So sorry to hear about Jeff. It is hard to lose someone so young. I remember him from Allison church many years ago. Even though we lived in the same development we did  have much contact with each other but would wave if I saw him. I moved out of WR this summer after several falls. My thoughts & prayers are with you.Jane Lerch

I worked with Jeff Eppley at Schaffner for seven years. He was one of the best people I've ever known and a true fraternal brother. We shared a great experience at that place and a lot of laughs. I will miss him always. Gabriel Bartash
