It has been nearly a half-century since I had contact with my childhood neighbors, the Bixlers, I'm so very sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. My sympathy and prayers go out to Joyce, Mike, and the extended family.

I am so glad that I had a chance to know your dad. He was always a ray of sunshine and found a way to make me smile on the worst days. No matter how old we are, it’s never easy to lose a parent. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve.
