    I know you are at peace now and no longer in pain, but the selfish me wanted a little more time. A little more time to hold your hand, to tell you that I love you and to hear your voice. I crave to hear the words “Well Tamme, I don’t know what to tell ya…”, then the conversation would last another 45 minutes or so. I am blessed to have had you as my grandfather and I am proud to be your granddaughter. Just a little more time…I love you dearly…always in my heart…always on my mind… – Tamme, Hannah and Lil’ Sarah Nicole

    For TJ Jeffery and your family, Jack will be so very missed. The knowledge that he shared with us will never be forgotten. He was an inspiration of strength. He never quit. He had a sense of humor that was unique. TJ the care, compassion, and love you gave Jack was never ending and without reservation. I am blessed to have met you and Jack. Every day that I pass by his home I will think of Jack and his wonderful TJ. Thank You for sharing Jacks life with us. God bless you all.
