    So very sorry for your loss. Jeff was a great guy! I have known him for years and he ALWAYS took the time to come and talk with me & Scott, wherever we were. So personable and friendly. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family – especially my dear friend Julie.

    My fondest memories of my cousin Jeff are childhood, swapping houses, staying at Auntie Sharron and Uncle Ronnie’s house, visiting Grandmother and Grandfather Vieau, having the best breakfast, and playing outside until we just dropped in bed at night. I miss you Jeff. Please say hi to Donald, Grandma and Grandpa and everyone else in heaven. Love you cousin, Johnny

    Dear Julie, I am so very sorry. My prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time. Jeff was a wonderful friend, always a smile on his face, such a warm personality, and ready for a good joke or laugh! Those memories remind us that we were blessed to have known Jeff and I know that you were everything to him. I’m sorry that I won’t be able to attend on Saturday ~ know that my heart is with you and my arms….giving you a big hug. Much love to you and let me know if you’d like company in the coming weeks. XO Julie

    Julie & Children;
    I have no words to comfort you. I cannot imagine the heartache that you are all feeling. I remember going to hockey tournaments and us adults would play cards and all the kids (hockey players & the siblings) would all play together. This warms my heart, thinking about it 🙂 You are strong and brave Julie, and you have a very loving extended family, lean on them! To you kids – I’m so sorry you lost your father, especially at your young ages, and with the grandchildren how they will not grow up with their grandpa. So sad! My Love to You All!
