To the Mayo family,
My name is Debbie Johnson Roig, and i went to school with Jeff. He lived very close to me growing up. When I heard of Jeffs situation, i sent him some emails. We were able to talk alot about what he was going thru and what i am going thru. I am fighting Colon Cancer. Ive completed almost 6 months of chemo. Talking to Jeff helped, each of us. Im so very sorry for the loss of your husband, and the children loosing their father. Jeff was a good guy and we often wonder why cancer hits us. There is no explaining it at all. It just seems when it happens, we must fight the beast to conquer this illness. Im happy i had the chance to communicate with Jeff in the last 3 weeks. We shared our stories. When i heard he passed, i was so very sad for you all. He was gonna fight hard, as i am. You have two beautiful girls and i pray for you all to get thru this bad situation. Life takes us in places, we have no control over. God Bless you all, and RIP my friend Jeff.

So sorry to learn of Jeff’s death. My husband Ray and I met the family when we moved to South and became involved in LL and Big league Baseball. What a wonderful family. Jeff looked a lot like his father and had his charm and wit. God’s blessing to all.
My brother Bob Rolley sent me the news about Jeff’s passing. I’m so very sorry for your loss. I spent a good deal of time, many years ago, with Mark and came to know the Pompeo family well. Blessings to your family. LuAnn
