  2. My condolences go out to Jeffrey’s family at this very sad tragic time. His Dad is a very, very good neighbor of mine and my sympathy is wwith their whole family.

  3. I will always cherish the times we spent together growing up. You made me laugh with your funny stories. But the greatest story you shared with me was the day you told me you had asked Jesus into your heart. I saw a peace in you that I had not seen in years. You will be missed and I look forward to the day when I see you again.

  4. You could always make me laugh with your wonderful stories. I love you and will miss you.

    My heart goes out to Jeff’s family,
    may God ease your grief. I love you all.

  7. Jeff will surely be missed! we remember when him and Tim came fishing at our house! We had alot of good memories! We send our condolences to his family!

  8. Bobby

  9. Cuz I will always remember the good times we shared as a family. You will be deeply missed.Just knowing that you accepted Jesus Chirst into your life is a blessing and gives me peace. God bless you.We love you.

  10. Jeff, you were like a dad to me in so many ways. You were such a strong person who, through anything could show a smile. That smile will never be erased from my memory. Have fun telling stories up there. You always had a good one to share. I ove and miss you more than you could ever understand.

    I can’t wait to hopefully one day see you again. Until that day Rest In Peace Jeff.

  11. Jeff, what memory do we not have? That would be a better question. I have laughed with you, at you and about you more than I can count. The nights you spent in our home keeping us all well entertained were so vast. From the nub finger trick to all the hunting stories, wild game dinners, camping/ boat/ fishing fun to bringing your sweet children to our home each time they were in town… words can not describe how much “Cousin Jeff” will be missed. My girls and I are completely overwhelmed with grief & confusion as you were so very happy for once in your life? We may never understand but know I will love Kristin and treat her as family because she was the love of your life. Thank you for the sweet letter you wrote for the book, “My Life for your Life” by Clarke Paris who knew Jeff Smith would have published work… you were a printer & yet such a wonderful deep writer as well. Our lives will carry a void without you & Tim and all the other family members whose lives were cut short. I want you to know I did not rest until I was able to reunite your children. I said, “The Jeff Smith I knew & loved would want nothing more than to be buried beside Tim & have all his kids brought together even if it took his death.” I know personally how much you loved ALL of your children and NEVER stopped even though hurts were involved. Your children are even more beautiful than their photos you looked so forward to each Christmas… and your 5 grandchildren, Jeff they are so very precious! My condolences to : Kristin, Zach, Madison & Dylan
    Children: Audrey, Ben & Bonnie & their children, Mandy & Matthew Smith
    Until then Bodine… Love you! Pam

  12. Dear Dad,

    I’m 19 struggling day to day,
    My faith gets weaker the harder I pray,
    When I speak to God.. I hope He tells you everything I say,
    I miss you so much dad, in every single way,
    My life is like a jammed up highway,
    Im trying to make it to point B, but im stuck in the driveway,
    with my mind in the gutter and my feet stuck in cement,
    A year has passed and I still mourn as if all this was recent
    those thoughts that went through your head that day.. are the only things i resent,
    I still feel like what happened.. I could have prevent,
    You told me you were going to always be there.. that was our little agreement,
    I’m doing my best to make sure my future is decent,
    People suggested counselling or some sort of treatment,
    I told them, all I needed was you.. my father,
    tears are shed daily by me and your daughter,
    I was at the point where I looked at life and said why bother,
    but I would have only been disappointing you.. that why Im a scholar,
    the only time I can hear you is when i listen to my voice mail,
    I would listen to it every day if it didnt hurt like hell,
    I wish to have you back every time I toss a coin in a wishing-well,
    They say I will only become stronger.. I guess time will tell!!!

    I love you and miss you more than life itself!
    Mandy and I want their daddy back!!!!
    Keep looking over me, I still need your support!!

    Love Your Son,
    Matthew
