|Goodbye, Jeff Thank you for staying with us a while. We loved you for your caring heart, your easy smile,your giving ways and the joy your brought to our lives. You'll be missed|
"Friday was a hard day. So many memories of you everywhere, while some places more. I would not give them up for anything. There may be a moment of sadness, but in the next instant, a smile. So many treasured memories of you.
Thank you, honey, for the time you spent with us.
"My dear sweet son, next week marks a year since you have been gone and it feels like a very long time. Each day brings tears from happy memories and tears of sadness from not having you here. But, you are always in our hearts. There is not a day goes by that something does not remind me of you. You saw life in a different and wonderful way and that made you special. Love you always."
"Missing you a lot today. Seems like it has been forever. What a blessing family is. One thing that never goes away is a family's love for each other. I am sure it is a lot nicer where you are and that you would hate the constant heat we are having this year. I am so grateful for the gospel and knowing that we will all be together again. We think of you often and love you always."
"I agree with mom Jeff there is always something that reminds me of you. It was hard if it wasn't for cody & colton being there for me and Brandon Bock being there when I broke down crying when I found out you were gone I don't think I would have made it I was too far away to hug anyone like mom or dad. I know you know you will always be remembered just like I said. love you brother"
"Faith and Family see you through, but that saying of - " with time, it gets better", has not happened yet. Always something to remind me of you, which while it hurts , it is also good. You will always be remembered for the kind, sweet , fun loving and thoughtful person that you were. Love you."
"Thinking of you a lot today, honey. You would probably be planning a trip to the lake to go swimming. Miss your sweet smile and easy going manner. You are so loved and missed.
"I know you had to have a wonderful birthday. Even if we couldnt be there, all the grandparents and uncles, aunts,and cousins that are in your space...were, and I know,it was a great day. Love you Jeff..........you left a special imprint on everyones heart, that knew you. Happy Birthday!!!"
I'm thinking of your family today as it is Jeff's Birthday.
"Happy Birthday Jeff."
"Happy BirthDay Jeff"
"Happy birthday Jeff, I'm sure your having a "kick ass" party today! - Bryan Dunbar"
"Happy Birthday, Jeff.
We were blessed with 9 pounds of pure joy, the day you were born. Although the time was to short here on earth together, we have Gods promise & blessing of seeing you again. The time went by too fast , honey. We so miss and love you. I know you are not so far away .
Love from all of us, always"
"I feel such love and peace, that I know comes from the Lord. I know that you are okay and we will see you again. Does not make it easier. Your birthday is Wed. and thoughts of you are stronger and constant. Thank you honey, for being a part of our family and adding so much to our lives.
Mom, Dad & Bobby"
"My dear, sweet son, May is just 4 days away. That will be a hard month for me, as it was your birthday the 15th. Was always fun & interesting to see where you would choose to go, for your birthday meal. I know that you knew how loved you were and are. God blessed me with 3 very special men in my life. I know that we will see each other again. We are so truly blessed."
"Was out in Arizona Thursday Friday Sat and Sun Morning lots of memories of growing up came back I couldn't sleep most the time at night we were at the store and some one came up to mom that didn't know and asked how Jeff was doing. Wow was that hard seeing mom tear up and have to tell them. I could see Dads sadness from losing Jeff had to stop his hand shake & give him a hug We miss u Jeff"
"Our sweet precious son, we miss you so much. Dad flew Bobby home for my birthday. What a great surprise and we had a good time. We feel the empty space of your sweet loving presence. We talked about you a lot. We are so blessed to know that we will be together again some day. You are always in our hearts. Love from your Family."
"Hard time right now, as your home sold . Of course, with you not there it is not the same, but lots of memories. Sure miss you.
Love you always,
"I do not think there can be anyone, who touched as many as you did and left so many good memories, in the limited time you were able to be here. The good person and kind spirit that you were is relayed so many times, when visiting with others. Thank you for being who you were. I know it would please you to know the difference you made to so many lives. Love and miss you.
"You are so on my mind and have been for days. I love you so much and am so happy that you helped to complete our family. I feel blessed that we are all close and that I know that we will see you again. While I know that you are in a better place, it does not help the missing you.
We love you always."
"We miss you Jeff it is unreal to still realized this happened just other day i was missing youa whole lot"
"It is hard to believe that we have been without you for so long. You are
so missed. We will forever have you in our hearts and minds.
"Today was mixed feelings as your home is being sold. Know that it needs to happen, but another sadness to deal with. I feel and have always felt that you have had a hand in all that goes on and are always watching out for us in some way. As well as your brother and all that he has done.
You are so loved and will be forever in our hearts. Mom"
"This is a hard time, as while happy thoughts, I can't help missng hearing and seeing you so excited over the Renaissance Fair. You would be planning your costurme and be concened about giving your friends a ride. You would also be worried about taking a cooler with drinks and food/snacks to make sure everyone had what they needed.
I hope they have a Renaissance Fair in heaven."
"Think of you every day. See things all the time, that I know that you would like or that remind me of you. Sure miss you.
"Missing you a lot today. So many memories and things that remind me of you. I miss seeing your sweet smile and hearing the different things you always had to tell me. Also, our calls to each other to give a reminder to each other, of a favorite show that was coming on t.v. You were so much a part of my life and some days are harder than others. I know that you are okay. Love you ,Mom"
"We are into the new year. Seems unfair for another year to come ,when you are not here to share it with. Miss you so much, but know that you are okay. Think of you a lot. Not a day goes by that something does not remind me of you, with a smile or tears, but always with so much love. Thank you, honey for being our son and for the wonderful memories we shared."
"Offical Christmas Day God & Family are the 2 most important things Merry Christmas Jeff"
"Its Christmas Eve I went to Church in Stockton Mo the other day was a good message so Merry Christmas Jeff
Love your brother
"I was thinking of how you loved to see people smile. The time that you fell down on the floor and started break dancing, the time you went to the stage at the Christmas program and learned the hula dance and about hearing from your friends, that you had also gotten up one night , when out with them , to learn to pole dance. So many fun and good memories of you. Love you ,honey."
"Merry Christmas my friend. I still find it hard to believe that you are gone. I know your family is having a hard time without and I would do anything I could to make it easier on them. You know how much I love your mom. Like every year you mom out did herself with a great
Christmas sock for me and Kriss. Tell my grandparents and mom I love them and Merry Christmas for me ok."
"This will be the first Christmas without my brother here. Jeff was as great a brother as you could ask for he cared about so many people and thats awesome. Jeff will be looking down from Heaven this Christmas knowing how much we cared about him and how strong our family is. Jeff If you have a way to see this message or hear my prayer I wish you a very Merry Christmas in heaven."
It is almost Christmas. So many things remind me of you. Sometimes I just have to remove myself from where I am, as it gets too hard. I see something that you would think was neat. I am so thankful for the fact that I know we will see you again. How sad , had we not have had you in our life. We are so blessed."
"I don't think the missing you, will ever get better.
Love you always.
"Seems like you have been gone forever and yet remembering all of our special memories, brings your sweet face and smile to mind. Can't begin to tell you how much you are missed."
"Love you Jeff...............you are missed and will be in our thoughts as we celebrate the holidays. We wish you could be with us ; but know that you came and left, and touched so many people with your smile and kindness...........I am so thankful that I am your aunt. Love you honey!"
"My dear sweet son,
The hurt of loosing you does not go away. I am comforted by the Lord, for that I am so grateful. I am thankful to know that you are not hurting anymore and are in God's presence. You are and will always be in our thoughts and hearts.
Love from Mom"
"I also was thinking about you the other day Jeff This will be a hard Christmas on the family without you Jeff. I know your in a better place love you and miss you"
"Thinking of you a lot today, honey. When ever we see a rainbow, we chose to believe that that is your way of saying"'Hi"'or " I'm okay."
I got a call from MaryAnn and she said that she had been thinking of you also. Then, she said, I saw a rainbow today and it made me think of Jeff. The missing you does not stop, but what beautiful memories we have of you"
"I am amazed at the people that were in your life and how many lives you touched in your short time here. What a wonderful beautiful life you had, for all that you did and how much you cared for others. What a great gift..
I know that you suffered with your health, but your spirit was strong and loving."
"Jeff I'm thinking about all the time. I know I was upset with you sometimes and I'm so sorry about that now. I love you and always will. I go to this page for every tribute add and every time I end up crying. I really do miss you. I find it so hard to think of you really being gone. I always think I will be talking to you soon. I will I know but there is going to be a wait now. Love, Me"
"Holidays are going to be tough to get through this year, without you. I know how much you loved the holidays, especially Halloween and think of the plans you had already made for that. The tears just come, with both sad and happy thoughts mixed. I am so Thankful for faith and knowing that we will see you again. Love you always. Mom"
"Starla & John,
May you find peace in your hearts and comfort with all the wonderful loving words people have left for you to treasure. those words can only come from their hearts and in knowing what a beautiful person Jeff was. He will live forever in your hearts."
"John & Starla, Thank you for your kind card. This memorial site is beautiful and many people loved Jeff dearly. He was fortunate to have such a wonderful family to love him and share these memories...The Staff at Dominic Medical Center"
"Love and miss you so much.
Mom, Dad and Bobby"
"When people remember and talk about you, the two things that always come up are
that you were a friend and helped so many( and ) that you liked to have fun. You really were so a head of the rest of us.....on being who you were and not worrying about what others thought. What a blessing you were and are still . Love and miss you, honey."
"I miss my brother still hard for me to believe this it is crazy how the last thing in the world you think would happen happened. I know that God got my brother a place way better than here although it doesn't change the fact of how hard it is for us down here. Miss you Jeff"
"As we sell or give away your items to friends, somethings get to me as I know that you enjoyed and valued them. You would be so pleased about the people who purchased your Halloween collection. They were as excited about it , as you were. It is now on its way to Washington to be used in a haunted house. The man getting it, is also named Jeff. One of those meant to be things."
"Hey Sweet Nephew,
I miss e-mailing and hearing back from you.
I love you and miss you! Auntie Joy"
"It has been 3 months today, that you have been gone. It still does not seem real. Not being able to talk to you or seeing you, is very hard. I am very thankful that we had you in our family for as long as we did and you will always be there because of our love and the wonderful memories that we have of you.
We love you , Mom"
"I miss your smile, your witty sense of humor, our talks and time spent together. I see you, in your Father and also your brother, at times. How blessed I am to have/had 3 special men in my life. Seems like you have been gone forever some days, but I know that you are with us always. Family truly is forever."
"Thinking of you a lot today and every day. While some thoughts bring tears, others bring a smile and wonderful memories of you. I am so thankful to have had you in my life. Love you always, Mom."
"When the Father says, Come home, and opens wide the door, we're sad because we cannot see our loved ones anymore, and yet we know, beyond that door, they're in a glorious place where everything is perfect, where they see the Savior's face, and He will send His Spirit down to soothe each grieving heart until we join our loved ones, home at last... no more to part. ( What comfort this is.)"
"Saying goodbye is so painful, but I know that we will see you again.
Your service was beautiful. You would have approved. I have to remember, that you are not in pain and that you are in Gods care.
Words cannot express our loss, but what a joy to have had you in our lives. Will Love & Miss you always."
"As today is my brothers funeral my emotions are on I miss my brother he was always someone I could lean on now things are a bit empty. Not sure if the friends I have can feel that role and that scares me. I miss jeff and hope that he is able to have a more power role in my life and has my back from Heaven among angels he did lots of good and I will never forget the memories growing up"

"Starla and family, My heart aches for you. I pray that God will comfort you and you will be able to smile often at the memories you have of your wonderful son and brother."
"I was just thinking of the good times we had going down to tombstone or the times we went to the phoenix coyotes game times at cayon lake the renesance fair goldfield ghost town or the time we went to the music store to look at guitar packages and to get you some guitar strings. I miss you bro and will never forget you"
"As a fighting student he was always a little slow learning, but once he had the concept he could use it at will. We called him "little Jeffy" or some times "no neck davis". As a sparring partner he was unfatigable and hit like a freight train. I can't ever remember seeing him lose his temper. He always was there as a friend and would listen to what ever you had to say. I'll miss you Jeff!"
"We love you all so very much.
And miss Jeff with our whole hearts!!
Joy ahd Family"
"Miss you so much. . You can't know the people you touched.. While I know you helped others and were a good friend , I was amazed at just how many people have responded in e-mails, calls and cards. Your gift of seeing good and not judging others, shows just who you were... Very Special."
"Jeff, I know that we had little time together as friends before your family moved to California, but those times after with seeing when on vacation were always fun and will never be forgotten. Now I know that someday when my time comes, I know that you will be there waiting ready to share some laughs again. Bryan"
"Jeff, I have not seen you for years, so I missed getting to know you in your adult life, but it sounds like you had many friends & were a very caring person. You are now at peace & if you see your cousin Jacob, please watch over him & become friends. To John, Starla & Bobby, I am so sorry for your loss, I know the hurt you are feeling & I am so sorry. Take care, love you & miss you."

""Jeff your the most caring person I know, you could alway's see the good in people. Your Life was short here on Earth, and I hope you can achieve everything you ever wanted in Heaven. "Jeff you will be deeply missed by all that knew you.""
"Dearest John, Starla & Bobby, It's been close to 30 years that we were Blessed to make friends with your family. My heart breaks for you all! I have such fond memories of Jeff so many years ago. I know he had to have been that very same nice man as he was at age eight.
Family,We"re so very sorry for your loss, Love, The Searcy Family"
"I remember many a conversation with Jeff. He would stay after everyone else and get so involved that he would often forget the time. He loved talking about witchcraft and being a wizard. I also got to go to several events with him. Going to Canyon Lake was one of the favorites. I know that he is running around without pain now."
"Starla,John, and Bobby,
Doug here ( joy's son). Although we have not had the chance to spend a lot of time together over the years I remember you all and am saddened by the loss of Jeff. You are all in My families thoughts and prayers."

We all will miss him and our prayers go out to each of you Starla, John & Bobby with the assurance that you will meet Jeff again. Love Aunt Glora & Uncle Verle"
"A member of our group has passed on. Uncle Fester, a good friend of mine is now with our ancestors. He was a very gentle soul, until something else was needed. When necessary he could be fierce, but always in defense of others. I will not miss him for he will always be in my heart. Blessings to my fellow Wizard, Jeff, who has graduated from this life."
"jeff was a great friend of mine i will greatly miss hem if hes famly need aneythang pleas call me"

"Jeff you were an awesome brother I have many good memories growing up with you. We had a lot of good times I thought you would be around forever and I took that for granted What a wake up call for me this is. I get tears in my eyes and crackled up inside and if I am driving I have to pull over but I realize God must need you in heaven now Jeff I love you and miss you alot Bobby"
"What a beautiful soul you were. You captured our hearts from the moment that you were born. You grew into a wonderful man who cared deeply for others, often hurting for them and wanting to fix their problems. No one should have had to suffer the way you did in your young life, but you remained who you were.
We will love you always ."
