Tom and Denise, you know how much I loved your son and my heart is truly broken. The past 5 years of being his house manager and seeing the change in him (all for the better) has been so wonderful. Jeff is going to be so missed by his other housemates and all the staff. We tried our very best to make his life here at Countryview the best for him. We love you both and will be praying for peace and comfort.
