    Hardest working man I’ve ever known. It’s possible that Jeff fathered the “Work hard and Play hard” philosophy. He wasn’t scared of anything and JEFF would throw himself in front of a moving train to protect those he loved. Lots and lots of memories, many of which I can’t share 🤭.
    Grandma Blackwood a/k/a Grandma a/k/a Viola went to her grave convinced that Jeff could walk in water ❤️
    Life is short and people are precious. May we all cherish the memories and embrace those we love.
    I have no doubt that Jeff , Alex and “Uncle Frank” have found a fishing hole, grandma is baiting their hooks and every one is happy.
    Until we meet again ….
