Dear Kelly, I left a message on Jeff's phone expressing my deepest sympathy for your loss. I'm glad that I got the opportunity to meet Jeff on Honor Flight on the first weekend of April. I enjoyed his company as my Guardian on Honor Flight. I apologize for the late response. I would have liked to have been at the funeral home in person to express my sympathy in person.
