    Bob and Sue , I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your son Jeffrey. Such a beautiful family. Bob, it was always a highlight when you and the boys would sing together at church. The love and respect that radiated from each of you as you sang together in harmony was more than entertaining, it was an inspiration. The loss you must be feeling might seem overwhelming at times, but as we know, it is just temporary. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
