To the family - I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Jeff & Terri. Growing up in Abbeville & being at the Rhodens house alot, Kim & I enjoyed being with Terri & Jeff - they were always alot of fun & included us when they could. Jeff would cut up and pick on us. I remember when they were married and when Lisa came into their lives - what a joyous day. Have kept you in my thoughts & prayers.

Jeff and I grew up together in Abbeville,our dads worked on the rilroad together. Jeff was the only friend from high school thatwas a groomsman in my weddingin April 1973, we had lost touch,and I am very sad about his passing. I knew his family well, and spent a lot of time at his house. Iknew his dad as Mr. Cain, but all the railroad people called him "cotton"

I was so sorry to hear about Jeff and Terri. Jeff and I went through school and graduated together. I remember Terri and her family from Main Street Methodist Church, and school also. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time of grief. If there is anything we can do please let us know. Mike & Cheryl Finley-McCrimmon
