My condolences to the Pecor/Salter Families,

During this time of great sorrow, may it comfort you to know that others are deeply touched by your loss. I too know the pain of losing someone dear. Even though our hearts are broken, rest assure that our Grand Creator cares about you personally (1Peter5:7) and can help you though this difficult time.
Revelation 21:4 speaks of a time soon when God will do away with death forever. There will be no more sorrow, heartache, or pain. May your happy memories and sure scriptural hope comfort your hearts during this painful time.

I'm not sure that a sweeter person has ever lived, and I truly believe that anyone who was privileged enough to know Jeff in this life is now a better person for it. My heart hurts, but I am still so very thankful that many of us were allowed to share in his life and love, even if only for a short time. Words are not sufficient to explain how much he will be missed.

Life Stories

Jeff was one of my closest friends. There are so many memories that Jeff and I had that I wouldn't have enough room here to say. The memory that would be the most important to me was when Jeff was the best man at my wedding. He was always there for me when I needed him, and hopefully I was there for him when he needed me. Jeff was just an all around wonderful person.

A fond memory I have of Jeff is a recent one. One Friday afternoon late July, myself, Glenda, Mario, Jeff, Chad, and Rob from work visited Jeff and David . Jeff was so happy for us to come visit and was eagerly waiting in his garage for us to arrive with a big smile on his face. As we unloaded some food we brought, he was just so overwhelmed with what people from work had prepared for him and you could tell he felt the love! He was so sincerely thankful. Once everyone arrived, he and David was the perfect hosts and dished out baked ziti, pizza, cold drinks, and decadent deserts. We all sat around and talked about everything you can imagine - from fertilizer to old shoe dog stories. We were all laughing til we were crying over Bebe watching and interacting with the show that was on tv (dog whisperer). Bebe would actually watch the tv, bark and growl, and jump up at the tv as if it were for real!!! Then later on as things settled down, Mario asked Jeff if we could pray with him which he welcomed. We all laid our hands on Jeff and Mario, Glenda, and Jeff Jessie said some of the most beautiful prayer you will ever hear. Jeff raised his head smiling and you could tell he felt our love and God’s love too. I don’t think any of us will ever forget that day that got to experience it. As we left one by one, he hugged each person and thanked them for coming. When I got ready to leave, we hugged and our last words to each other were “I love you”. At the time I didn’t realize that would be our last words to each other….I’m glad they were.

I was sorry to hear of Jeff's passing away. We worked together over 12 years ago, at Jarman Shoes.I remembered how Jeff loved Elton John's music. He will be missed by all who knew him.May God Bless You in your time of sorrow. With Heartfelt Sympathy. Harold Thornhill

There are so many! But one that comes to mind is ... You had come over for dinner along time ago and we were having coco and I got out my favorite Panda cups, and we began to talk about how we both loved Pandas, and other things. So as you left that night I gave you 2 of my Panda cups and I kept 2. You said you couldn't break up the set and I told you you weren't. That every time I drank anything I would use one of them and that would always make me think of you and our friendship, and you laughed and said cool and I will always remember you when I use one. So I am now drinking a cup of coffe in our cup my dear friend...

I came over to your house and we drank wine and drove around surrounding neighborhoods and walked through big houses that were in the process of being built...just dreaming big! Then we went to meet Sissy and Gary ar Chilli's and I was so hammered and you were so worried about me and took special care of me that night! All of our many talks about my herendous relationships with men!! You gave plenty of advice on how to raise my sons who were in high school at the time raising cane and I was blind to it...but you knew what they were doing! I love ya man--prayers to your family xoxo

You said I was afraid to break a nail! How bout everytime you were in my office my nose would itch and you told me to quit picking it...
