    My family and I wanted to send our deepest and most heartfelt condolences. Jeff & Ryan played our wedding and were both very good friends of ours. We even brought our youngest son to see them play once years ago. My family always went out to see JR Hoss play on St Patrick’s Day, and I would like to consider myself a good friend to both Jeff and Ryan having enjoyed many great moments together throughout the years.
    I’m deeply sorry for your loss. I wish I could have done more to help Jeff in his time of need. May God guide his journey from here forward and may He provide you even a slight bit of comfort some day. Our prayers are with you and your family now and forever!
