    I only knew you a couple of years (Keen Gas), but I could tell you were a good, hard working person. I will keep the family in prayer.

    I’m not sure even how to begin signing this guest book. Jeff, my love, you meant the world to me. We had our rough times but who doesn’t? We had some amazing times and made amazing memories. You weren’t only my “lover” you were one of my bestest friends. I could tell you anything in the world…most of the time I know you didn’t want to hear half of it, but you still listened. You are a strong man, one of the hardest workers (my perfectionist),funny, caring…just wonderful. One of my biggest fears in life is losing someone close to me …and now I’m living that. I pray to God everyday you are pain free and at peace and that you are happy, that’s all I ever wanted was you to be happy. Rascal misses you like crazy! I promise you we will give her the best life we possibly can. I know you always wanted her to have a big back yard…dad fixed the fence so now she runs out back.(I know you can see all this but thought id tell you anyway) Call me crazy but as I’m typing this I just got a smell of you. I know you are here with us. Rascal can sense you too. To hold you, hug you, kiss you …you have no idea babe. I love you so much and always will!!! Miss you more than words can explain!

    To Jerry and Dolly and Family: Words are not adequate to express the sorrow we feel for your loss. At times, life does not make sense and losing a child is tragic. The bond you and your son had cannot be broken, he will always be in your heart. We are very sorry for your loss, our hearts go out to you and your family. Wishing you peace and comfort……..Glen and Jean Densmore

    What we once enjoyed, we can never lose;
    All that we love deeply, becomes a part of us.

    Jeff ….We’ve known each other since St Hedwigs . The Chihuahua brothers LOL! Then met back up when I moved to Scott field… Then G high …had a lot of great times through those years I will always remember the great times we used to just jump in your car / or my car and go get lost ..go explore!!! Listen to great music and have great philosophical conversations!!! You’re quite the sentimental fellow a lot of people probably know that about you but I know it firsthand…The shirt that you had all the class sign on the last day of fourth grade and when you showed it to me so many years later and showed me my horrible handwriting LOL I knew we were supposed to be friends for life… I know we haven’t spoken in years I’m sorry!!!!!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jeff (aka “Muffins”), and your family. I wish you had an idea of how you touched us all in one way or another. I hope you found the peace you were looking for. You will be greatly missed.

    Words can’t describe the shock that I’ve felt over the past week. Jeff this was supposed to be us leading Keen into the future. You were the best Keen had and that pushed me to be the worker that I am today. Keen will not be able to replace the person and worker that you brought day in and day out. Rest In Peace brother, you will be greatly missed
