Cynthia , TOMMY and Mike. I know what it’s like to lose a father and I will continue to pray for you as you go through this time of sorrow. I love you all very much.

    Jeff was one of my husband’s dearest friends on the railroad. I never met him, although Charles wanted me to. He had asked several people where Jeff was now but no one seemed to know. Would have loved to have seen him again. But we just found out, here at the end of September, that he had passed away. We pray for God’s comfort for his family and Charles thanks Jeff for his friendship.
