Celebrating the life of Jeffrey L. Smith
Thank you for signing Jeffrey L. Smith's Guestbook
I will always remember Jeff as one of the ever-smiling, most-happy and kind person I have ever known. He never had a harsh word about anything or anybody. He was a kind, sweet man, and we will all miss him terribly. Truly a non-forgettable brother-in-law.

Karen, I was truly saddened to learn about your loss. Jeff was a good friend and I enjoyed working with him. I am reminded of some of the funny stories he would tell, his unforgettable laugh, and how he always reminded me that I "sugar coated everything". He was a very kind sole with a great loving spirit. I am also reminded of how much love and happiness you brought into his life. Your marriage was a true blessing!

Jeff was a friend and a brother. I guess I will never forget that big booming voice, and his smiling face. Sometimes life gets in the way and we loose touch with those we care about, but we never stop caring. My deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved Jeff. I shall miss him for the rest of my life.
