Dear Jane and Anthony,
My deepest sympathies to you during the difficult time. I wish there were words that could help you in the sorrow of losing Jeff.
Jeff was one of my interviewers when I joined the company. I remember our first meeting, it was pleasent and I thought to myself that it much be a nice company to work for with such a pleasant person in the lead.
I worked closely with Jeff during the years and had my last call with him just two weeks before he passed away. We worked mostly on pleasant topis, but also had challenges to face. Jeff had always a reasonable and constructive approach. Working with Jeff was comfortable, whatever the topic was.
He was a friend and a colleague who was ready to help, added lots of value with his thinking and had always ideas of improvement due to his long experience in the company and business.
I am missing our discussions and will always remember him with a smile. Especially while having a cup of tea brewed in the lovely tea pot he gave me as a house warming gift.
With my kindest regards,
